OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Carmelo Anthony scored 32 points, including the winning basket with 5.3 seconds left, to help Denver win its third game in a row, 114-113 over Oklahoma City on Wednesday night.

After Kevin Durant made a driving layup with 17.2 seconds left to give the Thunder a 113-112 lead, Denver called a timeout before getting the ball to Anthony, who drove to the basket and leaned in for a 4-foot shot that gave the Nuggets the lead with 5.3 seconds to play. Durant's shot at the buzzer from 25 feet missed.

Durant finished with 31 points and eight rebounds. Anthony had 11 assists to go along with his game-high point effort.
