Last night in Minneapolis, the Denver Nuggets were playing so well that the game was "essentially over" by halftime, writes The Associated Press
. Carmelo Anthony led the scoring with 23 points, and Chauncey Billups got his first dunk of the season, as the Nuggets trounced the Timberwolves, 110-87.
"We tightened up, buckled down and the defense was great," Billups said. Things appear to be going great for his team, which is the number 2 seed in the Western Conference, a strong position for the playoffs.
