Game Story

DENVER (Ticker) -- For the first time in nine seasons, the Denver Nuggets are headed to the playoffs. Marcus Camby collected 12 points, 21 rebounds, seven assists and five blocks as the Nuggets clinched a postseason spot with an 97-89 triumph over the Sacramento Kings. As the final seconds ticked down, a wild celebration began in the stands at the Pepsi Center and spilled onto the court. "These guys just played their hearts out for this city," Denver coach Jeff Bzdelik said. "It takes courage and perseverance to not let people challenge your confidence. This team has worked extremely hard and will continue to get better. I'm extremely proud of every single one of them." The Nuggets had not made the playoffs since 1995, when they were swept in the first round by San Antonio. Denver was 17-65 last season and became the first team in NBA history to make the playoffs the year after winning fewer than 20 games. "17 wins to the playoffs, it's like night and day," Camby said. Rookie Carmelo Anthony scored 17 points, despite playing the fourth quarter with a migraine headache. "It felt like the room was moving and things just got blurry," Anthony said. "We won the game, though, so forget about the migraine. (The playoffs) hasn't really hit me yet. You can come talk to me tomorrow, then I can answer all of your questions better." The Nuggets extended a four-point halftime lead to 78-64 in the final minute of the third quarter. The Kings responded with a 17-3 run and tied it at 81-81 on a jumper by Anthony Peeler with just over 6 1/2 minutes to play. Andre Miller, who scored 21 points, answered with four straight and Camby took over defensively. After a steal by Camby helped the Nuggets take a 91-87 lead, the 6-11 center rejected a shot by Peja Stojakovic that Miller grabbed and fired ahead to a streaking Anthony. The resulting dunk electrified the crowd. "I just tried to step it up down the stretch, not just tonight," Camby said. "I'm a guy who has a lot of playoff experience, so I used that to my advantage." Denver has won five of six games and their 43 victories is its highest total since going 43-39 during the 1989-90 season. "We talked about how energetic they were going to be," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "I don't think we played with enough poise to take their crowd out of the game." Stojakovic scored 20 points to lead the Kings (55-25), who failed to clinch the Pacific Division title and the second seed in the Western Conference. "It's tough playing four games in five nights," Peeler said. "We are not worried about not being ready for the playoffs, we're still in the top three in the West."
