Game Story

DENVER (Ticker) -- While the Denver Nuggets are vying for the right to face the top team in the Western Conference, they've recently had a good look at the best of the East. Jermaine O'Neal scored 31 points as the Pacers completed a perfect four-game road trip with a 103-94 victory over the slumping Nuggets. Denver lost for the eighth time in nine games as it faced an elite team from the East for the third straight night. On Tuesday, the Nuggets lost to New Jersey, which was without All-Star point guard Jason Kidd. "I knew this would be a difficult stretch," Denver coach Jeff Bzdelik said. "We fumbled the ball a couple of times during this stretch. We just need to gut it out and just keep getting better and growing. We still have a hold of the eighth spot. We just need to keep working and keep battling." The Nuggets were embarrassed by Detroit on Saturday and appeared headed for another long night against the best team in the East. But they battled back from a 65-43 third-quarter deficit and were within 90-88 on a layup by rookie Carmelo Anthony with 1:50 to play. "I thought they took a big step tonight, especially in that second half," Bzdelik said. "They really showed a lot of character and really dug down deep. This is what we're looking for and they responded well." "In the second half we competed," Anthony said. "But when you get down by 22 points, you have to play perfect. There is no reason to hold our heads." O'Neal, who had 11 points in the fourth quarter, converted a three-point play with 96 seconds remaining. It remained at least a two-possession game thereafter as Indiana notched its league-leading 23rd road victory. Anthony rebounded from Saturday's eight-point showing and finished with 29 points as Denver remained 1 1/2 games ahead of idle Utah for the final playoff spot in the West. Already the first team to clinch a playoff berth, the Pacers notched their fifth straight win and improved to 18-6 against the Western Conference this season. They had no answers for Anthony, who almost rallied Denver. He had a pair of dunks and eight points in the first four minutes of the fourth period to slice the deficit to 85-77. The Pacers went scoreless on its next four possessions, and Earl Boykins sank a pair of free throws to make it 85-82 at the 5:56 mark. After O'Neal ended the drought, Denver hung around before Indiana made 10-of-11 foul shots down the stretch. "We were waiting for it," O'Neal said. "When we were up 20, we thought the game was over." "Denver is a team that showed real fight tonight after their game last night," Indiana coach Rick Carlisle added. "We wanted to get a lead and keep building on it. We were able to get some big stops and some big steals." The Pacers, who lead New Jersey by 8 1/2 games for the top seed in the East, also got a big game from Anthony Johnson. With Jamaal Tinsley bothered by a sprained right toe, Johnson took advantage of a rare start and scored a season-high 21 points. He made 8-of-9 shots, including three jumpers in the first half to help the Pacers take a 53-41 lead.
