Game Story

DENVER (Ticker) -- Overcoming a career outing from Darius Miles, the Denver Nuggets went into the playoffs on a winning note. Carmelo Anthony scored 36 points for the second straight game and Earl Boykins added 24 as the Nuggets finished an impressive surge under George Karl with a 119-115 win over the Portland Trail Blazers, who got a career-high 47 points from Miles. Denver already had secured the seventh seed in the Western Conference playoffs but needed a late run to avoid its first three-game losing streak under Karl, who went 32-8 after taking over the team January 27. "I don't know if I have had this much fun for two months," Karl said. "This run was special and there should be some recognition for what these guys have done." Boykins snapped a 106-106 tie with a runner with 2:09 left, giving Denver the lead for good. A 3-pointer by Wesley Person with 49 seconds left and a layup by Anthony 16 seconds later made it 115-108, capping a 9-2 burst. "In the second half we played with pride and defensive intensity," Boykins said. "In the first half we played with none. Wes knocked down a big 3-pointer. We finally rebounded and that ignited our running game." Denver (49-33) won its last 12 games at home but will open the playoffs on the road against the second-seeded San Antonio Spurs on Sunday. "I think my team believes and I think that they have learned some things," Karl said. "Playoff basketball reveals who you are and every team in the league will know who you are." Miles, who was in and out of the Trail Blazers' lineup all season with injuries and recently criticized interim coach Kevin Pritchard, had 24 of Portland's 42 points in the second quarter, helping his team take a 70-56 lead at halftime. The 23-year-old forward shot 14-of-18 (78 percent) and scored a franchise-record 32 points in the first half. His second-quarter output was one point shy of matching current Milwaukee Bucks coach Terry Porter's franchise mark for scoring in a quarter. "We had a monumental game tonight by Darius," Pritchard said. "He answered the bell every single time tonight." Miles was just 5-of-15 in the second half as Portland fell to 9-32 on the road. "It would have been extra good with a win, but it is the end of the season," Miles said. "There is really nothing to prove. We're playing against a playoff team, so I didn't expect to do something like this." Denver trailed by as many as 17 points late in the first half but turned things around in the third. Anthony had a three-point play to cap a 7-0 run with just over three minutes left in the period, pulling the Nuggets within 82-78. DerMarr Johnson's two free throws with 1:44 to go in the third gave Denver its first lead, 85-84. "Halftime, everybody was down," said Anthony, who along with Nene had 13 rebounds. "Coach came in and was yelling and everything, and then we calmed back down. It worked. We took heed to what he said and in the second half we buckled down defensively. "This was a pride game. Coach wanted to see how we were going to react. It all starts now, the playoffs." Sunday's visit to San Antonio will begin Denver's second straight trip to the playoffs after an eight-year absence.
