Game Story

DENVER (Ticker) -- With their inside force sidelined with injury, the Denver Nuggets went outside to extend their winning streak. Wesley Person scored 11 of his season-high 18 points in the third quarter to fuel the Nuggets to a 111-98 rout of the Portland Trail Blazers. Marcus Camby, the reigning Western Conference Player of the Week, was scratched before the game with a strained right hamstring. His absence had little effect on Denver, which stretched its winning streak to seven games, matching its longest run since 1989. The win moved the Nuggets (31-29) into a virtual tie with the Los Angeles Lakers for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. "This team is a very capable basketball team," Nuggets coach George Karl said. "They're just starting to feel good about themselves. It's been a great run but I don't want to get too happy. We have a lot of work to do." Person never reached double figures in 16 games with the Miami Heat before being waived, but scored 10 in his second game since signing with the Nuggets on Thursday. He needed fewer than four minutes to reach that mark following a scoreless first half. After Carmelo Anthony led a 17-6 run early in the third quarter to help Denver extend a 56-50 halftime lead, Person broke out with 11 straight Nuggets points to close the period and give the Nuggets a 90-74 advantage. "I told myself to be patient and stay a professional," Person said of his limited time in Miami. "I knew my opportunity was going to come. My opportunity came and I made the best of it." "I was glad to see Wesley Person get involved tonight," Karl said. "I think the additions of Eduardo Najera and Wesley have been accepted by the team in a very positive way. They both have jumped in contributed faster that we would have thought." Denver, which has won eight straight at home, blew open the game at the start of the fourth with three straight 3-pointers by Person, Bryon Russell and Greg Buckner, increasing its lead to 25 points. Anthony finished with 23 points and Buckner added 16 on 4-of-4 shooting from the arc for the Nuggets, who improved to 14-4 under Karl. Denver's eight 3-pointers matched a season high. "Coach is harping on making threes and shooting threes," Buckner said. "I think he wants to add that to our game to help out the guys down low. If we make our shots then they cannot get doubled down low." "We aren't quite where we want to be yet," Anthony said. "I think we're going in the right direction, though. We've always had belief in ourselves. As a team we had a little funk at the beginning of the season but we got over that." Damon Stoudamire scored 24 points for the Trail Blazers, who fell to 0-3 under interim coach Kevin Pritchard. "We had some good individual efforts," said Pritchard, who took over for the fired Maurice Cheeks on Wednesday. "I feel good about the way we competed. There were stretches where we dug in and played hard." Portland has lost five in a row and 10 of 12 overall. The two wins came against Atlanta and Charlotte, the two worst teams in the NBA. "In the third quarter, they just came out strong," said Blazers forward Darius Miles, who scored 16 points. "You can't get mad at the games now, but you can get mad at the effort. Tonight we had effort and I had fun playing." Kenyon Martin returned to the starting lineup for Denver, which does not play again until Saturday at San Antonio. Martin, who scored seven points and blocked four shots, missed the last two games with tendinitis in his left knee. "It's a good time for a break," Buckner said. "We have some guys that are banged up, so we really need the time off."
