Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Led by big man Marcus Camby in regulation and little guy Earl Boykins in overtime, the depleted Denver Nuggets earned a rare road win. Camby finished a dynamic first four quarters with a follow shot in the closing seconds of regulation and Boykins broke out for an NBA-record 15 points in overtime as the Nuggets posted a 116-110 victory over the Seattle SuperSonics. Already without Kenyon Martin, who was scratched with strep throat, and a suspended Nene, Denver was forced to dig deeper when leading scorer Carmelo Anthony suffered another sprained ankle in the third quarter. The gutsy victory came as no surprise to Nuggets interim coach Michael Cooper, who improved to 3-7 at the helm. "The team has been playing well but we just haven't come up with complete games," Cooper said. "It was just good team basketball. We beat a very, very good ballclub tonight, but I think we are also good." "Probably nobody would have given us a shot going in with what happened to (Martin) and definitely when Carmelo went down," Camby said. "People probably thought it was over, but we kept scrapping and guys made plays for each other." Camby finished a tight fourth quarter with a free throw with 40 seconds left and a tip of DerMarr Johnson's miss with 1.8 seconds left, forcing overtime and granting Boykins a second chance to shine. The 5-5 Boykins, who scored just three points in regulation, made the most of it with an electric overtime. He hit back-to-back 10-footers to start the extra period and made a 3-pointer with 3:27 left for a 102-97 lead. "Earl's been great for us all season long," Camby said. "Every time he shoots the ball I think it's going in." Boykins was surprised to learn he had entered the NBA record book and was even more pleased with his performance at KeyArena. "I was overdue to play well here," Boykins said. "I have never played well here in my career and I was aware of that. That's one record I was aware of. I have never shot the ball well in this building. I don't think I've ever scored 10 points (in Seattle) and before the game I just wanted to play well for myself." The Sonics trimmed the deficit to 102-99 but Boykins had one more outstanding sequence in him. He put on a dribbling display before finding a cutting Andre Miller for a layup and then burned by Luke Ridnour for a three-point play and a 108-99 lead with 1:39 left. Boykins made four more free throws and Miller finished a 30-point effort with two of his own as the Nuggets snapped an eight-game road losing streak. "If we play with great effort and energy like that then we are capable of playing with anyone in this league," Boykins said. "Tonight we did that." Camby scored a season-high 25 points and matched a career high with 24 rebounds, including a pair of hustle boards at the close of regulation. It was the third 20-point, 20-rebound game of Camby's career and his 24 rebounds were the most against Seattle this season. "Marcus is always big for us," Cooper said. "Anyone that can close the middle down for us. He does so many things for us. He is very vital for us and when he is shooting the ball out there like he was tonight, that means he is a double threat for us." Anthony sprained his right ankle with 10:55 left when he landed on Sonics forward Nick Collison's foot following a missed jumper. It marked the fourth time this season he has suffered such an injury. He is listed as day-to-day and will be re-evaluated in Denver on Wednesday. While Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis struggled, combining to score 34 points on 13-of-39 shooting, Seattle was picked up by Vladimir Radmanovic, who scored 25 points and grabbed nine rebounds. Allen missed a long jumper at the fourth-quarter buzzer. "I have had nights like this before, but I haven't had too many of them," said Allen, who was 6-of-22 from the field and just 1-of-8 from 3-point range. "It's nothing I can put my finger on. Everything I shot looked good when it left my hand but it wouldn't go in." Fellow reserves Danny Fortson and Antonio Daniels scored 20 and 16 points, respectively, for the Sonics, who had a four-game home winning streak snapped. "This was a tough game to swallow," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said. "We made a lot of mental errors. I thought we were too quick with the 3-point ball. We had an opportunity to win that game. There were just too many errors and not enough execution." That lack of execution allowed the Nuggets to escape with just their third win in 16 games and their first in three tries this season vs. the Sonics.
