The Nuggets stole a page from the early-season Jazz playbook and went with the two point guard attack. Ty Lawson and Chauncey Billups gave the Jazz fits all night, getting in the paint and opening things up for Carmelo Anthony, who put up 37 points.
The Jazz kept things close most of the night, but Denver was always in control and answered every Jazz run with a flurry of backbreaking baskets.
Watching the Nuggets is a tutorial in aggressive play. Every player seems to approach the game like a rabid animal, and it’s a sight to behold. Even smooth players like Carmelo and Billups have that killer instinct and a sense of the moment that makes it seem like every shot is a dagger. I hate to see him take down the Jazz, but I could watch Carmelo play all day long.
