CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Carmelo Anthony scored 18 of his 25 points in the second half, Chauncey Billups added a key three-point play late, and the Denver Nuggets held off the Charlotte Bobcats 88-80 on Tuesday night to stay unbeaten with Billups in the lineup.
It was Billups' second trip to Charlotte in just over a week. He had a much more pleasant day this time around.
A week after he abruptly left town before the game when Detroit traded him, Billups calmly guided his new team, finishing with 16 points and five assists as Denver moved to 3-0 since he replaced Allen Iverson at point guard.
