SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Carmelo Anthony scored 34 points and the Denver Nuggets ran away from the San Antonio Spurs in the fourth quarter in a 106-99 victory Saturday night.
Chauncey Billups added 18 points as Denver took the lead to start the fourth after trailing virtually the entire game, then never gave it back to San Antonio. The win pushed Denver to 15-5 and continued the best start in Nuggets history.
The Nuggets will continue their four-game trip Monday night in Philadelphia for a reunion with Allen Iverson, who is expected to make his 76ers return against his former team.
Tony Parker scored 15 of his 27 points in the fourth for the Spurs, who lost their second straight. Tim Duncan had 26 points.
