DENVER (AP) - The high-flying, high-scoring Denver Nuggets didn't leave town with Allen Iverson, after all.
Although the new model features a stingy defense and an effective halfcourt offense engineered by Chauncey Billups, there's still some pop left in the lineup to light up the scoreboards.
Linas Kleiza scored 25 points and Carmelo Anthony had 17 and the Nuggets whipped Milwaukee 114-105 Tuesday night.
The Nuggets got double-digit scoring from all their starters, plus Kleiza and Renaldo Balkman, and they beat their season high in total points, 113 in overtime against the Clippers on Oct. 31.
