Game Story

DENVER (Ticker) -- LeBron James' first victory over Carmelo Anthony never was in doubt. James scored 12 of his 17 points in the first half as the Cleveland Cavaliers jumped out to a big lead and coasted to a 92-73 triumph over the Denver Nuggets. "I couldn't ask for anything better," James said. "To come out here and jump on a team like this at their home is nice." The reigning Rookie of the Year, James and the Cavaliers lost both matchups with Anthony, who finished second to James for the award, and the Nuggets in 2003-04. Dating to their high school days, Anthony was 3-0 vs. James entering the contest. "I've got to get a couple more wins before we get to even," said James, who also had eight rebounds and nine assists. "He is always going to try and play well and get a team win. I'm trying to do the same." After a basket by Marcus Camby drew Denver within 14-11 with 5 1/2 minutes to play in the first quarter, James hit a jumper on the other end that ignited a 28-4 run that made it 42-15 with 7:41 remaining in the half. James had four points and three assists while Lucious Harris added eight of his 13 during the spurt. "They played well and they played hard," Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin said. "I don't have much to say, it was an ugly loss." The Nuggets, who did not make a shot after Camby's bucket until Anthony made a short jumper that ended the Cavs' barrage, shot just 29 percent (11-of-38) in the first half and trailed, 58-30, after 24 minutes. It was the highest scoring half of the season for Cleveland and the lowest for Denver. "Tonight, I think we did a great defensive job," Cleveland forward Drew Gooden said. "We knew it was going to be tough and we just wanted to come out and play a complete game of basketball." Anthony, who missed the Nuggets' last game with a sprained right ankle, scored 14 points for Denver, which scored less than 80 for the second consecutive outing. Denver finished shooting just 36 percent (27-of-75) - the sixth time this season in which it shot less than 40 percent. The Nuggets are 1-5 in those contests. "We don't give ourselves any chance to win," Denver coach Jeff Bzdelik said. "Why this is happening, I don't know." Jeff McInnis scored all 15 of his points in the first half for the Cavaliers, who salvaged the finale of their three-game road trip. "We've got a long way to go," Cleveland coach Paul Silas said. "We showed poise tonight and enthusiasm. We really played super basketball tonight."
