Game Story

DENVER (Ticker) -- With All-Star Carmelo Anthony in foul trouble, little Earl Boykins came up big for the Denver Nuggets. Boykins matched a career high with 32 points and fueled a second-half surge to lift the Nuggets to a 99-89 victory over the winless Chicago Bulls. "I've been working this year to stay focused and play more consistently," Boykins said. "When you're 5-5, people aren't used to it (his success). It is always going to be a big story." In the first half, Boykins - the smallest player in the NBA - scored 15 points and Anthony added 13, helping Denver to a 53-52 lead. After Anthony picked up his fourth foul just 2:38 into the third quarter, Boykins took control. His 3-pointer gave the Nuggets a 68-66 lead late in the period before Bulls rookie Andres Nocioni answered with a pair of free throws. Kenyon Martin's jumper snapped the tie and sparked an 11-2 run by Denver. Boykins followed with another 3-pointer, and yet another by Bryon Russell gave the Nuggets a 79-70 lead entering the fourth period. "We had good moments, but we couldn't sustain it," Bulls coach Scott Skiles. "Other than Nocioni and (Kirk) Hinrich, we looked really fatigued." Boykins, who scored 10 points in the final period, made 10-of-15 shots and 10-of-10 free throws. He is the shortest player in NBA history to score 30 points in a game, matching his effort from eight days ago. "He's got the heart of a lion," Martin said. "Size doesn't matter if you can get it done. He is probably the most unappreciated guy in the league." Anthony scored 18 points and Martin added 13, nine rebounds and three blocks. Andre Miller scored 10 of his 16 points in the second half for Denver, which has won three straight home games. "I'm just glad the team is playing better basketball," Boykins said. "We are playing with more confidence, that is the difference." "We need that killer instinct from start to finish," Nuggets coach Jeff Bzdelik said. "We need to have that sense of urgency all the time." Nocioni scored a season-high 22 points and Kirk Hinrich added 10 and 10 assists before leaving with an ankle injury in the fourth quarter for the Bulls. Their 0-7 start is the second worst in franchise history, trailing only 1967-68 squad, which started the season 0-9. "We played better tonight," Nocioni said. "Sometimes the other team changes their mentality. We need to adapt to change. We need to play stronger." The Nuggets, who led the NBA in fast-break points last season, improved to 4-0 when scoring at least 18 fast-break points. All four games have been at the Pepsi Center, where Denver has averaged 99 points and 20 points on the fast break.
