New guys step up for Nuggets in win over Hawks

DENVER (AP) - Newcomers Raymond Felton and Wilson Chandler combined to score 31 points Monday night, helping Denver rally for a 100-90 win over the Atlanta Hawks for the Nuggets' third win in four games since the deal that sent Carmelo Anthony to New York.

Felton had 16 points and Chandler added 15 as the Nuggets used a 8-0 surge early in the fourth quarter to pull away from the road-weary Hawks.

J.R. Smith scored a team-high 19 points, while Kenyon Martin contributed 14 points and 11 rebounds as they picked up the slack in the absence of Danilo Gallinari, who sat out after stubbing his left big toe at Portland on Friday.

Joe Johnson finished with 22 points and Al Horford added 21 points and 16 rebounds for the Hawks, who wrapped up a seven-game road swing with a 3-4 mark.
