SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Chauncey Billups scored 22 points, Carmelo Anthony added 21 and the surging Denver Nuggets cruised to a 91-81 victory Wednesday night over the injury-riddled San Antonio Spurs.
Kenyon Martin added 18 points and Nene had 16 to round out a balanced attack by the Nuggets (8-4), who have won four straight and seven of eight. Denver improved to 5-1 since Billups joined the lineup following a blockbuster trade that sent Allen Iverson to Detroit.
The Nuggets also played strong defense, holding Tim Duncan to 12 points while snapping San Antonio's three-game winning streak.
