Parker's 30 pushes Spurs over 'Melo, Nuggets

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Tony Parker scored 30 points for San Antonio, Carmelo Anthony labored through a rough game as rumors of an imminent trade slightly cooled, and the Spurs beat the Denver Nuggets 110-97 on Sunday night.

Anthony may have more games in a Nuggets uniform yet. Coach George Karl said before tip-off he wasn't aware of any drastic changes, and New Jesey Nets coach Avery Johnson also tried quieting rumors of an upcoming deal.

Talks of a blockbuster trade that would ship Anthony to the Nets have lately intensified. Pressed about the possibility Sunday, Johnson said the Nets' roster won't budge between now and Friday,
the New Jersey Star-Ledger reported.

Anthony, upbeat before the game, scored 12 points on just 5 of 17 shooting.

The NBA-best Spurs (35-6) won their sixth in a row.
