SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Paul Millsap had career-highs of 22 points and 19 rebounds, rallying the Utah Jazz from a disastrous start in a 105-93 win over the Denver Nuggets in Game 3 of their Western Conference playoff series Friday night.
The Jazz lead Denver 2-1 in the series with Game 4 on Sunday in Utah, where the loud and rowdy fans lived up to their reputation Friday and added to the Nuggets' miseries with endless taunts.
Utah limited Denver's Carmelo Anthony to 25 points and flustered him into five fouls.
Deron Williams finished with 24 points and 10 assists for the Jazz, while Carlos Boozer added 18 points despite missing his first five shots.
