Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- After nearly three weeks of negative results, the Denver Nuggets are hoping this starts a positive trend. Rookie Carmelo Anthony scored 31 points as the Nuggets posted an 117-111 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. Denver has won two of three after losing eight of its previous nine. Before suffering several close losses, the Nuggets were 32-23 following a 21-point win over Philadelphia on February 17. The Nuggets (35-32) remained just one-half game ahead of Utah for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The top eight teams make the playoffs, and Denver hosts Utah on Sunday. "It was a must-needed game," Nuggets point guard Andre Miller said. "We came out with energy and kept it up the entire game. That will be the biggest game of the season. It's a chance for us to try and do something at home." Needing a win, Denver ran Milwaukee out of the building during a 22-6 run that bridged the third and fourth quarters and opened an 100-85 advantage with 7:35 remaining. The Nuggets tied a season high in points, scoring 117 for the second time this week and third this season. They had that many Tuesday in Washington and maintained their energy all night at the Bradley Center. "This is a team that has been put together, hasn't even gone through a year and has some young players," Denver coach Jeff Bzdelik said. "Learning how to close games and be efficient in games is important. We have been trying to do a better job at the start of quarters and at the end of quarters so we can attack and get in the penalty situation early." Anthony rebounded from a poor showing in Wednesday's loss at New Jersey, making 11-of-20 shots. He scored 18 points in the second half and capped the key spurt with a 17-footer from the right side. He also dished out a season-high nine assists and committed just one turnover in 42 minutes. It was the 19-year-old Anthony's sixth game of at least 30 points and it came against a team that he shot 2-of-11 against on November 19. "It feels great," Anthony said. "We fought all the way to the end against New Jersey the other night and we fought here too. This is what we want our game to be, running, being confident out there and having fun." "He was pretty impressive," Bucks coach Terry Porter said. "He just shot the ball really well tonight. That's probably the biggest thing that stands out." Keith Van Horn scored 25 points and Desmond Mason added 22 for the Bucks (34-31), who lost for the fourth time in five games and are tied with New Orleans for fourth place in the East. The Bucks allowed an opponent to reach 100 points for the seventh time in 10 games. They were pushed around in the low post as Denver scored 54 points in the paint and shot 56 percent (47-of-84). "In the second half, they really got out in transition and got some easy baskets, got to the foul line," Van Horn said. "Our transition defense in the second half really hurt us. That was the main key and it allowed them to shoot the ball so well."
