The Jazz improved their playoff chances by beating Denver for the third time this season, although Wednesday's version of the Nuggets was a diluted one. Denver used just eight players two nights after clinching the Northwest Division, allowing Kenyon Martin (knee) and Marcus Camby (back) to rest.

Utah (39-39) got within 112 games of Sacramento for the final playoff spot, although the Kings hold the tiebreaker over the Jazz.

Carmelo Anthony led Denver with 18 points.
