Carmelo Anthony is still a member of the Denver Nuggets, and a trade may not happen any time soon, if at all. Hours before tonight's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder (27-14), New Jersey Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov announced that the Nets have pulled out of trade talk with the Nuggets. With the Nets out of the trade picture, Melo's future with the team is still unsettled.
But that's all in the future. Tonight the Nuggets face the Thunder for the second time this season. The Thunder won their Christmas Night contest, 114-106. Kevin Durant scored 44 points in the contest, while Chauncey Billups put up 30 for the Nuggets.
Both teams are coming off losses. The Nuggets loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday night, 110-97, and the Thunder lost to the Los Angeles Lakers, 101-94, on Monday.
