Game Story

DENVER (Ticker) -- Kenyon Martin came up big in his first game against his former team, but it was diminutive teammate Earl Boykins who hit the biggest shots. Martin scored 22 points and Boykins hit two key shots in the final 2 1/2 minutes, including a layup with 20 seconds left, to lift the streaking Denver Nuggets to a 90-88 triumph over the New Jersey Nets. The Nuggets have recovered from a slow start to win four straight games, while the Nets have lost six in a row. After playing his first four seasons with New Jersey, Martin came to Denver in a sign-and-trade deal during this offseason. He has played well for the Nuggets of late, grabbing 12 rebounds in this one and recording double-doubles in his last four contests. The Nuggets are 5-0 in games in which Martin has a double-double. "It was a normal game," Martin said. "Obviously it was different not being on that team, but I have been here long enough that it is not that big of a deal. This game was not really any different. I did the same things tonight I've been doing. I play hard every night." Boykins hit a high-arcing baseline jumper over Travis Best with 2:15 left and added the game's key basket, spinning away from his defender for a layup that pushed the Nuggets' lead to 90-87. "It was luck," Boykins said. "I think all my shots are luck." "At the end of the game we made some big shots," Martin said. "It was a good solid win. We need to keep this thing going in the right direction." Andre Miller also had a good night for Denver, scoring 17 points - on 8-of-10 shooting - and distributing a season-high nine assists. "I was just trying to be aggressive and make plays for my teammates," Miller said. "We thought it was going to be a 60- or 70-point game, we knew it would be ugly but we got the win." "Andre Miller really got us going in the second half," Nuggets head coach Jeff Bzdelik said. "He has been trying to get everyone else in the game and sometimes he forgets about himself but he played well tonight." While Miller was working the perimeter, teammate Marcus Camby dominated inside, blocking an NBA season-high nine shots. Richard Jefferson led the Nets with 26 points but missed a crucial free throw that could have tied the game with 37 seconds left. "That's the way it is sometimes," Jefferson said. "It was frustrating but either way, they scored too. Boykins came down and hit a tough shot, but we still needed to score but we couldn't get one." New Jersey got a 42-point contribution from its bench. Rodney Buford scored 13 points to along with 11 apiece by Best and Brian Scalabrine. "(The bench) was great tonight," Jefferson said. "We know we have to stay optimistic because we know guys are going to come in and get better and get more comfortable." The Nuggets shot 50 percent from the field (38-for-76) for just the third time all season and improved to 6-5 on the year, the first time they have been over .500 in 2004-05. "New Jersey wanted us to stand around and shoot jump shots, but our defense kept us in the game," Bzdelik said. "How we shot 50 percent is beyond me." Denver is 4-0 against Eastern Conference teams this season.
