Nuggets-Suns notebook


By Michael Kelly, for NBA.com
Posted Monday November 29, 2010 1:20AM

THE FACTS: J.R. Smith scored 30 points as the Denver Nuggets overcame the absence of Carmelo Anthony and held off a furious fourth-quarter rally to beat the Phoenix Suns 138-133 on Sunday night.

QUOTABLE: "We didn't guard anybody. You score 133 points and you lose the game, that's ridiculous." -- Phoenix coach Alvin Gentry

THE STAT: The Nuggets had seven players score in double figures, and that was with Anthony having only two points in 2:48 of playing time. Anthony left the game feeling sick and at halftime left the arena.

TURNING POINT: After the Suns cut Denver's 19-point lead to one with 22.5 seconds left, the Nuggets put the ball in the hands of point guard Chauncey Billups. Billups calmly drained four straight free throws to keep the Suns from taking the lead.

QUOTABLE II: "I thought we'd do a little better in the fourth quarter. Giving up 44 points is really unacceptable, no matter who you're playing."
-- Billups, on the Suns' big fourth quarter

HOT: Jason Richardson single-handedly kept the Suns in it with his shooting. The guard was 7 for 10 from 3-point range and finished with a season-high 39 points.

NOT: In a game where the teams combined to shoot 62 3-pointers, Nuggets forward Al Harrington didn't join the fun. He had just seven points and hit just one from long range.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Smith's 30 points and eight rebounds were a pleasant surprise considering he had 24 points combined in the last six games.

GOOD MOVE: Nuggets coach George Karl used a small lineup effectively again, helping to overcome the loss of Anthony.

BAD MOVE: Gentry moved Hakim Warrick into the starting lineup for the first time this season. He came into the game averaging 13.1 points but managed only eight.

ROOKIE WATCH: Nuggets forward Gary Forbes made the most of his extended minutes with Anthony out. Forbes had 15 points to continue his strong start to the season.

NOTABLE: Anthony's streak of scoring in double figures ended at 134. The last time he failed to score at least 10 points in a game was Nov. 30, 2008, against the Houston Rockets.

UP NEXT: For the Suns, Thursday at the Warriors, Friday vs. the Pacers, Sunday vs. the Wizards. For the Nuggets, Wednesday vs. the Bucks, Friday vs. the Clippers, Sunday vs. the Grizzlies.
