Nuggets hang on to beat Knicks

DENVER (AP) - Carmelo Anthony scored 26 points and his teammates overcame his emotional blowup in the closing minutes to lead the Denver Nuggets past the New York Knicks, 120-118 Tuesday night.

Denver led by 16 early but the Knicks made a game of it by trimming a 12-point deficit to start the fourth quarter to 109-107 with 3:07 left on Raymond Felton's free throw after Anthony was
whistled for a technical after tossing his headband when he was tied up by Wilson Chandler while going for a slam dunk.

Anthony was then whistled for a loose-ball foul on the jump, and Chandler sank both foul shots to cap an 11-0 run and tie it at 109.

Chauncey Billups and Ty Lawson hit back-to-back jumpers and the Nuggets settled down.
