Chauncey scores 31 as Nuggets win in OKC

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Chauncey Billups scored 31 points and Carmelo Anthony added 24 as the Denver Nuggets charged back from a 13-point deficit in the fourth quarter to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 98-94 on Wednesday night.

The Nuggets held Oklahoma City without a basket for the final 9 minutes while finishing the game on a 22-5 run to pick up a crucial road win in their chase for the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference playoffs.

Billups scored 22 points in the second half, including two free throws that put Denver ahead 96-94 with 52.7 seconds left.

Kevin Durant scored 33 points but missed a shot in the lane that would've tied the score in the final 10 seconds.
