MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Carmelo Anthony scored 35 points, including the go-ahead three-point play with 33.2 remaining, as the Denver Nuggets overcame a 17-point second-half deficit to defeat the Memphis Grizzlies 111-109 on Wednesday night.

Anthony hit a pair of free throws with 5.8 seconds left for a 111-108 lead.

Memphis had one more chance, but Marc Gasol was fouled with 3.2 left. He hit the first one free throw and missed the second on purpose. Memphis was unable to corral the rebound, and Denver flung the ball into their frontcourt as the clock expired.

The Nuggets snapped a six-game road losing streak. Chauncey Billups added 18 points and 12 assists for Denver.

Rudy Gay led Memphis with 30 points.
