Denver needed a win last night unless they wanted to go down 3-1 in the series versus the Lakers. They did it without much from Carmelo Anthony who banged up his ankle and had stomach issues as well during the game. He finished the game with 15 points but the rest of his team picked up the slack. Chauncey Billups scored 24, Kenyon Martin and Nene both had a double-double, and J.R. Smith also scored 24 points. Kobe Bryant scored 34 points but it wasn’t enough as the Nuggets too game 4, 120-101 and tied the series 2-2.
