Anthony reaches 50-point milestone as Nuggets tip Knicks


By Michael Kelly, for NBA.com
Posted Saturday November 28, 2009 1:24AM

DENVER (NBA.com exclusive) -- Carmelo Anthony toed the foul line with 16.7 seconds left and a heavy burden on his shoulders.

The Nuggets' star had 48 points, but more importantly his team held a precarious two-point lead on the feisty Knicks. With the game on the line and the first 50-point game of his NBA career in sight, the pressure was magnified.

"They might have been the two toughest free throws I've shot in a while," Anthony said. "We've got the game on the line, 50, you're right there and you want to get it."

Anthony didn't flinch. He swished both free throws and the Nuggets held on for a 128-125 win Friday night.

After coming close to 50 a couple of times -- he had 49 against Washington two seasons ago -- he finally got the magic number, and his teammates couldn't be happier.

"That was a treat," said Chauncey Billups, who had 32 points and eight assists. "He got real close, had 49, but couldn't get over the hump. That's one you remember for a lifetime."

Getting the win will help keep the memory pleasant, but it wasn't easy. Despite their 3-12 record coming into Friday's game, the Knicks were formidable, battling Denver to the final buzzer. Al Harrington came off the bench to score 41 points and pull down 10 rebounds and David Lee had 23 points and 10 rebounds.

"I felt like we played hard and took a step forward," said Harrington, who now has three 40-point games in his career. "If we play like this against most teams we can win our fair share of games."

They nearly pulled out Friday's game. After trailing for most of the first half, Denver rallied and took an eight-point lead on Anthony's three-point play early in the fourth quarter. But New York's shooters closed the gap, and Nate Robinson tied it at 100 with a five-foot hook with 7:56 left.

Denver appeared to take control again when Billups nailed a 3-pointer to push the lead to 118-112 with 2:26 left, but the Knicks never quit. They had a chance to tie it with a 3-pointer in the last 4.4 seconds but Larry Hughes couldn't get off a shot.

"They are a difficult team to play," Billups said. "They have so many shooters, they run a great system [Mike] D'Antoni has, and when they have that many guys scoring it's going to take an unbelievable effort to beat them. If their scorers had played that well the first 15 games they'd probably be over .500."

The Knicks haven't played that well, which is why they're 10 games under .500 just 16 games into the season. But D'Antoni saw progress in Friday's loss.

"I think we found a formula that we can stick to. I thought we really competed tonight," he said.

Against a team playing as well as Denver, the Knicks needed a little more, especially when Anthony got hot. New York tried to guard him with multiple defenders, but that just opened up things for Billups and J.R. Smith, who had 12 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter.

"When they did double him he found an easy basket or a three," Nuggets coach George Karl said. "He's been playing very, very well and tonight was probably the celebration of how he's played all year."

The Knicks felt like they did good job of containing him.

"He's got the total package right now," Harrington said. "He's hitting 3s, he's hitting mid-range, he can get to the free-throw line whenever he wants. When you play against a guy that's going like that, there's nothing you can really do. I think our guys did a pretty good job, because if they didn't he would have had 70."

The sold-out crowd at Pepsi Center thought so. When Anthony reached 42 points early in the fourth quarter the fans started chanting M-V-P for their hometown star.

"It's funny," Anthony said. "I like it. Still a long season to go but good people are recognizing."
