Anthony, Nuggets storm past sluggish Thunder


By Michael Kelly, for NBA.com

DENVER (NBA.com exclusive) -- Thunder coach Scott Brooks isn't ready to talk about the playoffs. Even though his team won 12 of 14 and vaulted into the sixth spot in the Western Conference, Brooks was avoiding the subject.

"I know one day we're going to have to start talking about that if we continue to play at this clip," he said before Wednesday's game against Denver.

Brooks still wasn't in a mood to talk about the playoffs after the Nuggets thrashed Oklahoma City 119-90 on Wednesday night. Denver, coming off two straight losses, completely dominated the Thunder, leading by as many as 40 and sitting its starters for most of the fourth quarter.

"We've been focusing so much and playing harder than we did tonight," Thunder forward Kevin Durant said. "It's a minor setback. It happens, but we don't want it to happen this time of the year."

With the Thunder playing well and the Nuggets fighting for a high seed in the playoffs, the game held a lot of importance. The highlight of the night was supposed to be Durant facing Carmelo Anthony, but Anthony dominated that matchup, outscoring him 30-19.

Like most of his teammates, Durant struggled from the field, going 5-for-12. He failed to score at least 20 points in a game for the first time since Dec. 19 -- a span of 34 games.

"We came out with an aggressive mindset on the defensive end," Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin said. "We put two bodies on him and got him out of his comfort zone."

As the game wore on, most of the Thunder players looked out of their comfort zone. The starters shot a combined 13-for-43 and the team overall shot 32.5 percent from the field.

Meanwhile, the Nuggets were hovering around 50 percent all game and constantly building on their lead.

"It was one of those nights we didn't do anything right," Brooks said. "They were getting easy buckets, paint points. Carmelo got going, which he's capable of doing. We didn't play well."

The Nuggets led by nine at halftime and quickly got the lead to 16 in the first two minutes of the third. Durant's 3-pointer was the only bucket Oklahoma City had in the first 9:08 of the quarter, and fittingly, Eric Maynor's short floater at the third quarter buzzer rimmed out, adding an exclamation point to the Thunder's 4-for-23 shooting in the period.

Going against a team that has beaten Dallas, Atlanta and Portland of late, the Nuggets were surprised this one was a laugher.

"We didn't expect to beat them like that," Anthony said.

Anthony almost didn't suit up for this one. He said he has been feeling drained for two weeks and has dropped weight, although he wouldn't say how much. He was given fluids through an IV after Wednesday's morning shootaround.

"After that Cleveland game I wasn't feeling right," he said. "My body wasn't right, my energy wasn't right, and it took me a week and a half to figure out I was dehydrated."

Now that he has his energy back the Nuggets are ready to make a push for a top-two seed in the Western Conference. They're a half-game behind Dallas for second in the conference and 6 games behind the Lakers for first, but they needed a win to shake off recent losses to Los Angeles and Phoenix.

"It's a confidence booster for us," Anthony said. "OKC is a playoff team right now. For us to go out there and do what we did tonight boosts our confidence."

The Thunder are in the thick of the playoff race but they know they can't afford too many nights like Wednesday. Brooks said he knows getting routed by Denver won't mess with his team's psyche.

"Some teams, yes you can worry about that, but our team has an incredible knack for bouncing back," he said. "I have a lot of confidence in our guys. One game I'm not going to lose all the things I believe in them."

Durant feels the same way.

"We're a team that bounces back well and shows a lot of resiliency," he said. "It's one of those wake-up games that happens throughout the year."
