Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- Carmelo Anthony helped the Denver Nuggets do something they hadn't done since he was 4 years old - beat the Hawks in Atlanta. The 20-year-old Anthony buried a baseline turnaround jumper with nine-tenths of a second remaining to lift the Nuggets to a 100-96 triumph over the Hawks. Denver snapped a 14-game losing in Atlanta, winning here for the first time since December 10, 1988. Anthony had a good idea where he was at the time. "I was probably running around being bad in the house or something," Anthony said. "That was big talk during our shootaround today, that we hadn't beaten the Hawks in Atlanta since 1988. In the second half, we kind of took that into consideration." After Atlanta's Obinna Ekezie made a free throw to tie the score, 96-96, with 2:28 remaining, Hawks rookie Josh Childress had a chance to capitalize on Andre Miller's turnover just 60 seconds later but had his layup blocked by Marcus Camby. "He had me with the pump fake," said Camby, who blocked six shots. "I was able to get my second bounce and actually get a hand on it and we were able to scoop up the rebound." The Hawks had two more chances to take the lead, but rookie Donta Smith lost the ball on a drive and veteran Antoine Walker shot an airball with six seconds remaining. "I probably took the shot too soon," Walker said. "I probably should have waited a couple of more seconds. I know better than that." Hawks coach Mike Woodson did not call timeout to set up a last-second shot. "I thought that (calling a timeout) would give them a chance to set their defense," Woodson said. "And we were going to hold it for the last shot anyway. Normally, I do call timeouts in that situation. I was hoping we'd run it down to one or two seconds, then win the ballgame. But it didn't work out that way." After Denver called timeout, Camby found Anthony on the left wing, and the second-year forward put the Nuggets ahead with a fadeaway jumper. "I walked up to coach and said, 'I feel something good,'" Anthony said. "Leaving my hand, it felt good. That shot felt pretty good at the end." "Carmello made a (heck) of a shot," Woodson added. "He shot the ball fading away. It's a tough shot." Boris Diaw threw away a pass and Earl Boykins sealed the win with two free throws. Anthony scored 22 points on 10-of-18 shooting and Kenyon Martin added 12 of his 16 in the second half and 11 rebounds for Denver, which outscored Atlanta 53-37 after halftime. "We were awful in the first half and gutty in the second half," Denver coach George Karl said. "That first-half team, I don't even know who they were. As the game went on, we got tougher and tougher. If we have a chance to make the playoffs, we'll remember this win." Camby scored seven of his 17 points in the fourth quarter and grabbed 10 rebounds as the Nuggets outrebounded the Hawks, 42-37, while improving to 2-2 on their five-game road trip. Walker scored 12 of his 22 points in the first half as the Hawks jumped out to a 59-47 lead. Atlanta shot 51 percent (22-of-43) in the first half but made just 13-of-33 shots after halftime, blowing a 15-point lead. Ekezie's layup at the 8:30 mark of the third quarter extended Atlanta's lead to 66-51. Denver battled back, using a 14-3 run over the next four-plus minutes to move within 69-65. Tony Delk scored 19 points but missed a pair of free throws with 2:29 to go that would have given Atlanta a 97-94 edge. The Hawks made just 10-of-17 free throws in the second half.
