With Mike Bibby, Peja Stojakovic, Mateen Cleaves, Hedo Turkoglu, Lawrence Funderburke and Scot Pollard all out, it was up to Christie and Jackson to lead the way.

Christie finished with a team-high 23 points, 8 rebounds, six assists and four steals against Denver.

Not to be outdone, Jackson followed closely with 21 points, four rebounds and four assists.

Chris Webber rounded out the scoring with a double-double of his own, notching 17 points and 11 rebounds for the December matchup.
