Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Andre Miller helped the Denver Nuggets get a challenging journey off to a good start. Miller scored a season-high 34 points and Earl Boykins provided a spark off the bench as the Nuggets opened their longest road trip of the season with a 111-105 victory over the Washington Wizards. Starting a stretch of seven road games in 11 nights, the Nuggets took the lead for good in the second quarter, then held off a charge by the Wizards in passing one of their rare tests away from home this season. Denver has played just five of its 18 games on the road. "We know how important this long road trip is going to be for us," Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony said of the club's longest road trip since 1987-88. "We were tired of playing at home. We wanted to get out on the road. We came out tonight and just got up and down the floor." Miller got the trek off to a good start with his best all-around game of the season. The point guard made 15-of-25 shots, handed out eight assists and also grabbed eight rebounds. "He's just outstanding," Nuggets coach Jeff Bzdelik said. "The way he shot the ball and rebounded, his assists, and he was solid defensively. He played 43 minutes. I just couldn't afford to take him out. "He's very good when he's aggressive, getting into seams, and he's physical enough where he can complete plays and get fouled." Boykins, the NBA's smallest player at 5-5, also used his quickness to give the Wizards fits. He collected 13 points and eight assists and helped the Nuggets open a double-digit lead in the third quarter. Anthony, a Baltimore native, added 23 points and Marcus Camby a season-high 16 and nine rebounds for the Nuggets, who nearly squandered a 12-point fourth-quarter lead before winning for the ninth time in 11 games. "We've been at home so long, I like going out on the road," said Camby, who also had four blocks. "I like coming out and beating guys in front of their own fans." After Larry Hughes made 1-of-2 free throws with 53 seconds left to pull the Wizards within 104-100, Kenyon Martin sank two foul shots and Miller sealed matters with a layup with 25 seconds remaining. "You knew Washington was going to make a run," Bzdelik said. "They were knocking on the door and we kept answering. Give our players credit, they responded." Antawn Jamison scored 17 of his 27 points in the first quarter for surprising Washington, which had its four-game winning streak ended. "We dug ourselves a hole and every time we felt like we got over that hump, they kept hitting big shots," Jamison said. "We weren't hitting shots and it seemed like every time they had a guy going to the other end, they were finding him. Even if you score, they're still going to get the ball up quickly and do some damage on the break. "They had a lot of fast-break opportunities and they really converted on them. Those guys can really run the floor. We just didn't get back on defense." Gilbert Arenas, the reigning Eastern Conference Player of the Week, scored 21 of his 28 points in the second half to pace the Wizards, who shot 47 percent (42-of-90). Denver shot 49.5 percent (45-of-91) and had 58 points in the paint.
