Jazz dominate from perimeter, top Nuggets 114-108

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Once Utah got warmed up on the perimeter, Denver couldn't do anything to cool the Jazz.

The long-distance barrage kept the Nuggets on their heels for the better part of four quarters and allowed Utah to scratch out a 114-108 win Wednesday night. Utah made 13 3-pointers before halftime - a franchise record for any half - and finished 19-of-46 (.413) from 3-point range.

"We knew they were going to be aggressive at the point of the pick and roll," forward Jae Crowder said. "That's what happened in the first half. We just moved the ball properly and got open shots and guys knocked them down."
