Carmelo's shot in OT beats Cavs in Cleveland

CLEVELAND (AP) - Carmelo Anthony scored 40 points, including the winning basket, and the Denver Nuggets overcame LeBron James' triple-double and ended the Cleveland Cavaliers' 13 game streak with a 118-116 victory in overtime Thursday night.

James had his triple-double by the end of regulation, finishing with 43 points, 13 rebounds and 15 assists, but Anthony matched him shot for shot, hitting the winner on a deep jumper over an outstretched James with 1.9 seconds left.

Denver's Kenyon Martin had 18 points and a season-high 17 rebounds, but the night belonged to two of the three top scorers in the league, who put on quite a display. Anthony played 48 minutes, adding seven assists and six rebounds for the Nuggets.
