Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) - Marcus Camby's strong final period helped the Denver Nuggets gain ground in the Western Conference playoff race. Camby scored 12 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter and grabbed 16 rebounds to help lead the Nuggets to a 109-98 victory over the Utah Jazz. The Nuggets (39-31) won for the seventh time in their last eight contests and moved into a seventh-place tie with Memphis in the West. Both teams lead the ninth-place Minnesota Timberwolves by 2 1/2 games. "It was an ugly win," Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony said. "But it was a good one. On the road, you can't ask for anything better than that." Playing his second game after missing a pair of contests with a sprained ankle, Camby was the spark for Denver with his 21st double-double of the season and four blocked shots. "He hit some big shots at the right time, got some key rebounds and got to the free-throw line," Denver guard Andre Miller said. "We just played off his energy and it was a good effort from everybody." "I think Marcus was great," Nuggets coach George Karl said. "I don't know how we win the game without him. Utah was hurting us with a lot of their cute stuff and their big guys got inside on us early in the game. I thought in the second half, Marcus' presence in the paint was big-time." Camby scored eight points, including six in a row, and Miller added four during a 14-4 fourth-quarter spurt that put the Nuggets back in front. Camby capped the spurt with a long jumper from the top of the key to give Denver a 91-85 lead with 6:40 remaining. "Defense (was the key), trying to control the paint," Camby said. "They were killing us on the glass in the first half, scored a lot of buckets in the paint. We buckled down, settled down, got control of the glass and were able to convert on fast breaks." After the Jazz scored five straight points to pull to within one, the Nuggets once again had an answer. Eduardo Najera made a steal and started a 4-on-1 break. Miller fed Camby for a reverse layup to highlight a 10-0 burst, which gave Denver a 101-90 advantage with 2:15 to go. "We were aggressive tonight," Anthony said. "Everybody, Camby, Andre, everybody. I think at the end, by us being so aggressive, (the Jazz) kind of wore down the last four or five minutes of the game. I'm glad we kept fighting and we won the game. That's all that counts." "It was close and then we turned the ball over a couple of times," Utah forward Mehmet Okur said. "We missed free throws, easy layups. They made them on the other end. I don't know how many games we've lost in the fourth quarter. Maybe 20, maybe more." Miller scored 24 points and Anthony added 23 for the Nuggets, who shot 55 percent (39-of-71) from the floor to earn a split of the four-game season series with Utah. Denver has won 15 of 17 - both losses were against the West-leading Phoenix Suns - and is 22-6 since Karl took over the team. "Right now, this team has a belief in itself, a little confidence," Karl said. "Seventh or eighth spot, I don't think it really matters," Anthony said. "We're going to get (to the playoffs) and we're going to fight, and we're going to compete, regardless of who we play." Okur had 23 points and 17 rebounds and Matt Harpring scored 16 points for Utah, which lost for the 12th time in 14 outings despite having six players in double figures. "Andrei (Kirilenko) is out. Carlos (Boozer) is out," Okur said. "I'm playing almost 40 minutes the last three games. I can play five minutes or 35 minutes. I try to do my best, try to help my teammates. So it's going to be like this."
