The Denver Nuggets continue to win despite Carmelo Anthony being sidelined for at least three weeks due to a fractured finger on his right hand. Chauncey Billups, Linas Kleiza, and J.R. Smith have all stepped up, each scoring 21 points, pushing the Nuggets to a 108-97 victory over the Miami Heat last night. It was the team's fifth straight win, according to The Associated Press. Kenyon Martin and Nene also played well, each putting 14 points on the board.
