Denver Nuggets Final Score: Carmelo Anthony Scores 35 In 112-107 Victory Over Thunder

Carmelo Anthony scored 18 of his 35 points during the third quarter in Wednesday night's 112-107 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. He grabbed seven rebounds and stole four balls. Also, he wasn't traded to the New Jersey Nets, who called off the trade in the afternoon. Though after the game, the crowd booed him while he was interviewed.

Chauncey Billups, who would have gone to the Nets in a Carmelo deal, added 16 points and six assists. Nene had 16 points as well and pulled down six boards. Kenyon Martin led the defensive effort with 11 rebounds.

For Oklahoma City, point guard Russell Westbrook led the offensive effort with 28 points and 10 assists. Kevin Durant was only 6-of-18 shooting, but he was a perfect 10-for-10 at the line. He finished with 22 points and four rebounds.

The Nuggets (24-17, 19-4 home) host the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night. ESPN will televise the game at 8:30 p.m. MT.
