Game Story

DALLAS (Ticker) -- The Denver Nuggets' progression can be credited to their aggression. Reserve Rodney White hit consecutive jumpers in the final two minutes and Andre Miller scored 16 of his 25 points in the third quarter as the Denver Nuggets rallied from a 20-point second-half deficit to defeat the Dallas Mavericks, 107-102. Rookie sensation Carmelo Anthony made a wide-open jump shot with 2:24 remaining to give the Nuggets their first lead since the opening quarter, 93-92. It also helped completely erase a 20-point deficit they faced 3:16 into the second half. "It was just about pride and heart," said center Marcus Camby, who had nine points and 12 rebounds. "We being down, we could have easily folded in the tent and said this game is too hard. But we just kept fighting and scrapping and eventually pulled out the win." Following a series of misses by the Mavericks, White sank a jumper in transition for a 95-92 lead with 1:44 left. After Steve Nash misfired on a running banker, White made a long jump shot for a 97-92 advantage with 1:17 to play. Coming off a career-best 24 points in Thursday's 115-99 victory over Chicago, White finished with 14, six more than his season average. He said he had success because of his aggressiveness. "(I) had some shots and I made them," said White, who was 5-of-7 from the field in 21 minutes. "I just had an aggressive offensive mind." So did Miller, the talented point guard who took advantage of a sagging zone defense. He had 16 of the Nuggets' 36 third-quarter points, two on a fadeaway jumper that closed their deficit to 90-89 with 4:11 to go in the period. "I was just trying to be aggressive," he said. "I mean, they were playing zone, so I didn't want to sit there and stand on the wing and try to shoot the ball. I just tried to be aggressive and get in the paint and make plays." Anthony scored 26 points for the surprising Nuggets, who claimed their second straight win following a three-game skid and moved within two games of the Mavericks on the final day of January. The Nuggets split the four-game season-series with Dallas. Last season, they went just 17-65 while the Mavericks made it all the way to the Western Conference finals. "You have to remember where they came from last year," Mavericks coach Jeff Bzdelik said. "We've had some tough losses and we've had some great wins and their charachter is great. They've stuck together, they are coachable and they play very hard." Denver snapped a 13-game losing streak in Dallas and dropped the Mavericks to 20-4 at home. On Wednesday, Dallas relinquished a nine-point fourth-quarter lead and had their winning streak snapped at nine games with a 91-88 loss at Utah. "I guess you have to take some bad with the good," coach Don Nelson said. "We've been good for a long time. We let our guard down in the second half. They snuck up on us and then we got in one of those cold spells and we couldn't do anything." Michael Finley scored 37 points for Dallas, 24 in the first half. His 3-pointer with 8:44 left in the third quarter gave the Mavericks a 64-44 cushion, one that took 18:20 to erase. "I think offensively we were still getting the looks we wanted, but definitely they were more aggressive, and as a result they were making big shots they needed to," said Finley, who was 18-of-25 from the field in 42 minutes. "It was a complete opposite of the first half for them and for us, and as a result they came back and got us." Plagued by foul problems, Finley didn't get many touches down the stretch and his teammates couldn't pick up the slack. After Anthony's go-ahead jumper, the Mavericks missed seven of their next nine shots. On the ensuing possession, Dallas had three chances to take the lead, but Finley, Dirk Nowitzki and Antoine Walker all missed. Nash made a reverse layup with 64 seconds left to get the Mavericks within 97-94. Anthony missed a jumper at the other end, but Nowitzki was way off on a 3-pointer, although it looked like Nene got a piece of his right arm. No call was made and an incensed Nelson was whistled for a technical. The Nuggets made 10-of-11 free throws in the final 29 seconds. Nowitzki scored 16 points on 8-of-23 shooting - 0-of-6 from behind the arc. He missed all three of his shots in the closing three minutes.
