The game pitted two teams that reshaped their rosters ahead of the NBA trade deadline.
The Nuggets had a bunch of new players and the Celtics a bunch of empty seats along their bench following a flurry of trades that unloaded a bunch of big men.
Denver played its first game with the five new players who came over in the blockbuster deal that sent star forward Carmelo Anthony and floor leader Chauncey Billups to the New York Knicks 48 hours earlier.
Paul Pierce, who led Boston with 17 points, hit a 3-pointer with 61/2 minutes remaining that gave Boston a 75-73 lead, but the Celtics wouldn't score again.
