Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Kenyon Martin's effort on both ends of the floor helped his new coach to a second win in as many nights. Martin scored 25 points, including a jumper with 42 seconds remaining that ended a drought of six-plus minutes, as the Denver Nuggets improved to 2-0 under George Karl with a 95-88 victory over the Indiana Pacers. The Nuggets led, 89-85, with under a minute remaining but had not scored since the 6:55 mark. Martin connected with a jump shot from the key to halt a 6-0 run by the Pacers. "I had it going tonight, I was feeling it," Martin said. "My teammates were getting it to me in good spots and, if I'm open, I'm going to knock it down. It's all about having confidence in my shot." Eight seconds later, Martin deflected a pass that was ruled out of bounds off Indiana guard Reggie Miller. "They set a double screen for (Miller), so I knew he was coming off," Martin said. "I just played it the way your supposed to play it. I jumped out, got my hand on it, and it went off of him." Karl's tenure has begun with two victories as Denver closed out a five-game road swing. The team had won just five of its first 21 away from home. "For us to get back in the playoff race, we're going to have to win on the road," Karl said. "It's good to have won the last two games and end the road trip on a right note," Martin said. "After our win last night, we just wanted to come in here and take the action to them." The Nuggets were given a scare when star forward Carmelo Anthony appeared to aggravate a right ankle injury with 22 seconds left. Anthony was limping slightly after the game and his ankle was described as "tender," but not serious. Anthony scored 15 points while Marcus Camby collected 13 and 12 rebounds for Denver, which won in Indiana for the first time since March 31, 1995. It was their first win in Conseco Fieldhouse. Jermaine O'Neal collected 22 points and 10 rebounds and Miller scored 15 points for the Pacers, who have lost four consecutive games. "For us right now, it's about being angry," Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said. "We're no longer an elite team, we're a mediocre team struggling to stay in the playoff race. Until we realize what it takes, we're not living in a world of reality." "At this point, we're not an elite basketball team," Miller said. "Anytime you get down double digits in this league, you're going to have a hard time digging yourself out. Sometimes, you aren't able to do it." Indiana took its first lead since early in the first period when it went on a 16-3 run to grab a 67-62 advantage midway through the third quarter. But Denver quickly tied the game and then took the lead for good by outscoring the Pacers, 11-5, in the final 4:30 of the period. "My guys were tired, but they knew they had to defend to win the game," Karl said. "The second half was not a great performance offensively, but we found a way to do some things. They got tired, lost a lead, got it back and fought through to the end."
