DENVER (AP) - Carmelo Anthony had 28 points and eight rebounds, Nene scored 22 points and the Denver Nuggets held off the New Jersey Nets 107-103 on Saturday night.
Brook Lopez scored 20 points to lead seven New Jersey players in double figures. Rookie Derrick Favors had 14 points and eight rebounds off the bench for New Jersey, which lost the last three
games of its four-game western trip.
Ty Lawson had 15 points off the bench for the Nuggets.
Anthony might have been in a New Jersey uniform Saturday if a rumored deal between the Nets and Nuggets didn't fall through on the eve of training camp.
