Posted Nov 28 2010 10:56PM

DENVER (AP) -- Denver Nuggets leading scorer Carmelo Anthony left Sunday's game with an illness and did not return.

Anthony started against the Phoenix Suns and scored two points and grabbed three rebounds in 2:48 before leaving the game. He sat on the bench the rest of the first half and then left the building at halftime, according to a team representative.

Anthony's streak of scoring in double figures ended at 134 regular season games. The last time he failed to score at least 10 in a game was Nov. 30, 2008, against Houston, when he scored two points.
