'Melo, Nuggets blow out Clippers, extend win streak to five


By Michael Kelly, for NBA.com
Posted Friday January 22, 2010 2:25AM

DENVER (NBA.com exclusive) -- Carmelo Anthony is already in the All-Star lineup, but he played Thursday's game like he still had some campaigning left.

Anthony, named a Western Conference All-Star starter in Dallas next month, scored 28 points and pulled down 10 rebounds in the Nuggets' 105-85 win over the Clippers.

"It feels good to know the fans out there recognize me and voted for me," said Anthony, the league's leading scorer. "To actually get a million votes, to be fifth in the whole NBA, it feels good. I want to continue to do what I'm doing so they can keep recognizing me."

It was another strong performance in a year when Anthony has been in the MVP conversation with former award winners Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. But as history has shown, the award goes to players whose teams win, and lately that hasn't been a problem for the Nuggets. Thursday's was their fifth straight victory and eighth in their last 10 games, giving Denver some traction as the playoff battle in the Western Conference heats up.

"The Orlando game, the Cleveland game, even the Atlanta game last month pushed us up a level," Nuggets coach George Karl said. "We've played very well against the A teams now can we become more consistent against the B teams."

Based on their 19-23 record, the Clippers are one of the B teams, but they also beat the Nuggets this year. That was motivation enough for Denver.

"They beat us out there we felt we were supposed to win," guard Chauncey Billups said. "But this is the NBA and they've got some really good players on a team that can get it going. We knew coming in, in our building, we wanted to pay them back."

They did, but it took a half to get it going. Once they did, Anthony showed the way. The Nuggets, who trailed 48-47 at halftime, grabbed control of the game in the second half. Anthony had 13 points in the period, and he got more than a few with style points.

He put a baseline spin move on Mardy Collins, started a fast break with an outlet pass on the next possession and hit a 3-pointer with 6:39 left to make it 70-56 and forced the Clippers to call a timeout.

"We had to find a way to get some momentum going our way," Anthony said. "The first half was kind of slow but the first five minutes in the third quarter, we found some energy and picked it up and that's when we opened the game up."

Anthony could have had more than 28 but he sat most of the fourth quarter when the Nuggets were leading by double digits.

The Clippers played without Eric Gordon, who sat with a sprained toe on his left foot. His 17 points a game would have helped.

"You need firepower when you play this team," Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "You've got to put some points on the board and we struggled with making outside shots even when we had open looks."

Anthony wasn't the only one hurting L.A. Billups took over in Denver's overtime win at Golden State on Wednesday, scoring 37 points, but against the Clippers 24 hours later he picked his spots. He hit three 3-pointers in the third quarter, two on consecutive possessions that put the reeling Clippers in a 76-57 hole with 4:26 left in the period.

"That's his shot," Dunleavy said. "He can dribble into a 3-point shot."

Billups has used that weapon to reach four straight All-Star Games, and he's a strong candidate to make it five in a row.

"Being an All-Star is an honor. I never take that for granted and it never gets old," said Billups, who had 20 points. "If it happens I'd definitely be honored and if it doesn't it won't be because I'm not playing at an All-Star level. It's going to be some very deserving guys that won't make it. If that is me that's just how the cookie crumbles and I will welcome the rest."

Karl pointed out good teams usually get more players, and so far his team has done well through the first half of the season. The Nuggets are 28-14 and tied with Dallas for second in the Western Conference, and that might be enough to have Billups join Anthony in Dallas next month

"The true basketball guys want it to be someone from a winning team and has a chance to contend for a championship," Karl said.
