Afflalo comes up big for Nuggets in OT win over Hornets


By Michael Kelly, for NBA.com

DENVER (NBA.com exclusive) -- Arron Afflalo is content to blend into the scenery and let guys like Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups get all the attention.

Against the Hornets on Saturday night, the Nuggets needed Afflalo to step up, and the third-year guard came through in a big way. Afflalo hit a career-high five 3-pointers, two in overtime, to help Denver beat New Orleans 116-110 for its sixth straight win.

It was a much different feeling for Afflalo than his previous game against the Hornets on Dec. 18. In that game, Afflalo was left open most of the night but he missed all six of his 3-pointers in a 98-92 Denver loss.

"We talked about how they were probably going to go with the game plan that beat us down there, which was double teaming Melo," Nuggets coach George Karl said. "For the most part they did double him a lot."

This time, Afflalo made the Hornets pay for leaving him open.

"It's nothing I took into this game," Afflalo said. "It was a brand-new opportunity."

Afflalo got the chance because neither team could close it out in regulation. The Hornets, playing shorthanded because forward David West was out with a sprained left ankle, led by one with less than a minute left only to watch Chauncey Billups hit a 3-pointer with 24 seconds left.

Chris Paul tied it with a jumper with 18 seconds left, giving the Nuggets a chance to win it. But Anthony, who scored a game-high 30 but struggled from the field, going 9-for-28, missed a short jumper and the putback in the final seconds of regulation.

"I thought we had it won when Melo got the tip-back but he just missed it," said Billups, who had 20 points and nine assists. "In the overtime we were focused and took the game over."

And Afflalo took over. His first 3-pointer of the extra period put Denver ahead 106-101, and after Paul hit his only 3-pointer of the night to cut it to 108-106, Afflalo sank another with 1:33 left to seal the win.

"There's always a weakness to the double team and I thought Melo did a good job of getting us a good shot," Karl said. "In overtime Afflalo's two 3s were huge."

It helped not having West, the team's second-leading scorer, on the floor, but his replacement did just fine. Darius Songaila had a season-high 20 point to go along with Paul's 26.

"In basketball, when a guy is out, different guys step up," Paul said. "Darius was real big tonight."

New Orleans missed West's presence on the boards, and it showed. Denver held a 61-37 advantage on the boards and four guys had double-digit rebounds. Kenyon Martin (20 points, 14 rebounds) and Anthony (11 rebounds) led the way, and Nene pitched in with 10 points and 12 rebounds.

"Offensively, any time you get 20 rebounds it's a pretty good effort thing because offensive rebounding is a lot of effort and a lot of missed shots, too," Karl said. "Some of the rebounds were our own misses. Melo probably had three or four offensive rebounds where he missed it and went back and got it. Rebound is a stat that can be tilted a lot of different ways but tonight it was important to us."

The Nuggets kept up their knack for beating good teams. Karl pointed out before the game New Orleans and Charlotte, Monday's opponent, are "the hottest teams in the NBA, record-wise." The Hornets were 10-3 since the end of December and are climbing their way back into the playoff chase in the Western Conference.

Charlotte has been one of the surprise teams in the NBA this year. The Bobcats are 9-3 since the start of the new year, including Saturday's loss to Orlando.

The Nuggets would like nothing more than to extend their streak to seven, but they might have to do it without Anthony. He rolled his left ankle when he landed on Devin Brown's foot with 1:04 left in overtime. He made two free throws before leaving the game.

"It's better than I thought," Anthony said. "It looked pretty bad at first, but it's better than I thought. We'll see how it is (Sunday)."
