Game Story

DENVER (Ticker) -- After a horrible start to their season, Carmelo Anthony and the Denver Nuggets made it back to the playoffs. Anthony collected 32 points and nine rebounds as the Nuggets clinched their second consecutive postseason berth with a 122-106 victory over the weary Golden State Warriors. After a playoff run last season and key personnel additions in the offseason, much was expected of Anthony and an up-and-coming Denver squad. However, an erratic start by the second-year forward and a 17-25 start by the team raised questions about effort. George Karl became the Denver's third coach of the season January 28 and has guided the team to a 29-6 record, including wins in 22 of its last 24 games. "Our team is playing a very high-level brand of basketball," Karl said. "I'm happy that we've clinched a playoff spot, but there is a lot of basketball to play. We're excited and hope the city of Denver is excited." "It's an incredible feeling to clinch the playoffs early and not wait until the last game like we did last year," Anthony said. "It is a heck of a story as well as we have done in the last couple of months." With the game tied, 70-70, at the 10:11 mark of the third quarter, Denver forward Kenyon Martin was ejected after picking up his second technical foul. "It's irrelevant," Martin said of the ejection. "We won and I'm happy because we're in the playoffs. It will cost me a couple of dollars but I'll take it for a win." Anthony and the Nuggets responded by continually attacking the basket as they outscored the Warriors, 23-10, over the next seven minutes. DerMarr Johnson, who scored 20 points, triggered the surge with a thunderous dunk. "With Kenyon gone I tried to get some things going around the basket," Anthony said. "I just decided to try take the team on my back and do what I can do out there." The 20-year-old Anthony scored 11 points during the burst, capped by a slam with 3:10 to go. Denver never was headed thereafter. Winners of nine straight home games, the Nuggets scored the first nine points of the fourth quarter. Earl Boykins capped the spurt with layup to make the score 107-86 with 8:14 left. The Warriors cut their deficit to 109-100 with 5:35 to go thanks to consecutive 3-pointers by Jason Richardson, who scored 26 points, but they got no closer. Golden State's Baron Davis scored 28 points in the first three quarters but was held out of the fourth. "I let Baron sit the last part," Warriors coach Mike Montgomery said. "He was really sore (with a left knee) coming into the game and I didn't want to risk running him into the ground. If we had gotten a little bit closer late in the game I (would have) come back with him, but I never felt we got close enough." Golden State had a six-game road winning streak snapped after having to deal with the Rocky Mountain altitude one night after a double-overtime home loss to San Antonio. "We were tired and a little sore," Davis said. "We had a tough one last night, but that is not an excuse. They came out tonight and stuck it to us." Andre Miller collected 10 points and 16 assists for Denver, which is two games ahead of Memphis for the seventh spot in the Western Conference playoff race and one-half game behind Houston for the sixth seed. Miller has 48 assists in his last three games. "We are just getting the ball up the court and the guys are running their lanes and playing their positions," Miller said. "I'm just making easy passes and they are making the shots."
