Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Carmelo Anthony and the Denver Nuggets have turned around a slow start and have done it away from home. Anthony scored 28 points and flirted with his first career triple-double as the Nuggets won their fourth straight game, a 101-87 victory over the reeling Toronto Raptors. Since a 2-5 start that had players pointing fingers and coach Jeff Bzdelik under fire, Denver has won 10 of 12, including three straight on the road after losing their first three away from home. "Earlier on in the season, we didn't come out of the gate well and we sputtered, so we've made a conscious effort to come out (strong)," said Bzdelik, whose team is two games into a season-high seven-game road trip. After a four-game stretch in which he averaged just 13.5 points on 22-of-71 shooting (31 percent), Anthony has picked up his game. He has scored 28 points in three of his last four games and shot 50 percent or better from the floor in four straight. "I know I can play this game," Anthony said. "I know I started off slow, but I'm starting to pick it up. People need to realize this is how we started off last season." In this one, Anthony had a season-high nine assists and eight rebounds. He had four assists during a 23-12 run to start the game, helping the Nuggets roll to a 56-37 halftime lead. In two games vs. the Raptors this season, Anthony scored 58 points. "It's always good to win on the road," Anthony said. "It's always good to win at home, but road games are big games regardless of who you play." While center Marcus Camby sat out with a bruised tailbone, Nene picked up the slack inside for Denver. He scored a season-high 21 points on 9-of-10 shooting and spearheaded a strong defensive effort with four steals and three blocks. Nene scored eight points during a 14-4 burst to close the first half. "(Nene) played great today. He had his legs under him and was finishing around the rim and that's huge for us," said Kenyon Martin, who scored 14 points and swiped 12 boards, helping the Nuggets win the rebounding battle, 46-39. "Nene's been working hard and he's getting in better shape every time he steps on the court and it's reflected in his play and his performance," Bzdelik said. Playing without Vince Carter, who was placed on the injured list earlier in the day with a strained left Achilles tendon, Toronto lost its sixth straight game. It held its only lead at 4-2 and never got closer than the final margin in the second half. Rafer Alston scored 25 points and Lamond Murray added 16 off the bench for the Raptors, who shot 38 percent (30-of-79) and had their four-game home winning streak vs. the Nuggets snapped. "It's unfortunate," said Alston, who set career highs with 13 free throws in 15 attempts. "You never want to let somebody work harder than you, but those guys were going from the jump tip until the end." The rest of Toronto's starters were 0-of-5 from the line. "We're just not getting it done, there's no excuse," said guard Jalen Rose, who scored a season-low three points in 21 minutes. "To lose like that on your home floor is absolutely embarrassing. We can't continue to perform like that, and there were no positives that I saw from today's game." Expected to pick up the scoring slack in Carter's absence, Rose was scoreless in 15 first-half minutes. "If there was something I could say to him or if there was a button I could push, you know, I don't know," Toronto coach Sam Mitchell said.
