DENVER (AP) - Chauncey Billups, Linas Kleiza and J.R. Smith scored 21 points apiece to help the Denver Nuggets win their fifth straight game, 108-97 over the Miami Heat on Wednesday night.

Kenyon Martin and Nene scored 14 points each for Denver in the Nuggets' seventh victory in eight games. Denver played without scoring leader Carmelo Anthony, out at least three weeks after fracturing a finger on his right hand Monday.

Dwyane Wade had 31 points, and Shawn Marion added 25 for the Heat, 1-3 in their last four games.
