Last night from MCI Center:

BY THE NUMBERS

5 Blocks by Denver’s Marcus Camby.



PLAYER OF THE GAME

Denver’s Earl Boykins, the league’s smallest player at 5-foot-5, scored 20 points, had four rebounds and handed out seven assists while turning the ball over just once. Meanwhile, the Wizards got little production from Jared Jeffries (three points, three rebounds and three assists), Brendan Haywood (four points, two boards, one block) and Antonio Daniels (0-for-10 from the field, one point).

SEEN AND HEARD

Daniels already has said Gilbert Arenas is the third best player he has played alongside, behind only Tim Duncan and David Robinson.

Nuggets coach George Karl also had lofty praise for Arenas.

“Gilbert Arenas might have moved into that area with Kobe [Bryant] and Tracy [McGrady] in that I don’t know if you stop this guy,” Karl said. “He’s quick. I don’t know if any one guy covers him. You have to cover him with two guys and zone him off the ball.”

So you like him that much?

“I think he’s playing at a higher level than Kobe or Tracy,” Karl saidd. “Now don’t get me wrong. If I had the first pick I the draft I’m not sure I’d take Gilbert, but he’s pretty impressive.
