Four-point plays send Nuggets past Heat
By ASSOCIATED PRESS
Published November 15, 2006
MIAMI - The Heat tried fouling from beyond the 3-point line, and even then failed to stop the Nuggets.
Carmelo Anthony scored 33 and Denver twice converted four-point plays to defeat Miami 112-105 Tuesday night.
The Nuggets' point total was a season high, and they outscored Miami 54-36 in the paint.
"We can't stop anybody right now," Heat coach Pat Riley said.
The defending NBA champion fell to 3-4 with its second consecutive loss, both at home.
Anthony lost his scoring duel with fellow 2003 draft pick Dwyane Wade, who had 37 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds. But the Nuggets reached .500 by winning their third in a row after an 0-3 start.
"A week ago the media had us buried," coach George Karl said. "Now we're good."
The Heat was again without Shaquille O'Neal because of a hyperextended left knee, his second injury to the knee this season. His status is day to day.
Thanks to fouls called against Gary Payton, the Nuggets had two four-point plays in the second quarter. J.R. Smith sank a 3-pointer, was fouled and made the free throw. Andre Miller was fouled trying a 3; Payton drew a technical for protesting the call, Earl Boykins hit that free throw and Miller made all three of his.
An 11-0 run beginning late in the third quarter put the Nuggets ahead to stay.
ATLANTA - Michael Redd converted a three-point play with 27 seconds left as the Bucks snapped a four-game skid. Ruben Patterson knocked the ball away from Atlanta's Joe Johnson, who had just crossed halfcourt, right before the buzzer.
