HOUSTON (AP) - Al Harrington scored 28 points, Carmelo Anthony added 24 and the Denver Nuggets beat Houston 107-94 in the Rockets' home opener on Saturday night.
Chauncey Billups scored 13 points, Nene had 12 points and 12 rebounds and the Nuggets won in Houston for only the fifth time in the last 18 games there.
Luis Scola scored 28 and Kevin Martin added 21 for the Rockets, who are 0-3 for the first time since the 1999-00 season.
Yao Ming scored 14 points, pulled down six rebounds and blocked two shots in 23 minutes. Houston continues to limit his playing time as he comes back from foot surgery that sidelined him all last season.
