Denver • QUARTER-BY-QUARTER ANALYSIS

The First: Nuggets 28, Jazz 23

Al Jefferson starts smooth, scoring eight of Utah's first 10 points. Ty Lawson speeds the game up, though, and the Nuggets' offense starts to take control midway through the period.



The Second: Nuggets 63, Jazz 46

Denver misses eight 3-point attempts to open the game, and back-to-back 3s by Devin Harris pull the Jazz within 44-40. The Nuggets go on a 21-6 run, though, closing the half strong.

The Third: Nuggets 88, Jazz 66

Utah's porous defense bottoms out, with Denver easily zipping by for free open looks at the basket. The Jazz defend neither the paint nor the perimeter, and the Nuggets go up by 22.

The Fourth: Nuggets 117, Jazz 100

Alec Burks scores eight quick points and runs the floor with confidence. However, the Jazz's defense never shows up and Utah sends in its reserves during garbage time.
