=== Denver Nuggets Team Report – January 15 ===

(Sports Network) – The Denver Nuggets were blown out by the Los Angeles
Lakers, 97-71, on Wednesday at the Staples Center.

Voshon Lenard and Andre Miller each had 15 points to lead the Nuggets, who
have lost two of three. Rookie phenom Carmelo Anthony scored 14 points, but
shot a dismal 4-of-17 from the field.

Denver has dropped four of six on the road and is 8-11 away from home this
season.

Anthony has scored in double digits in 34 of the last 36 contests. He is
averaging 38 minutes per night over the last four games.

The Nuggets are off until Friday when they host Steve Nash and the Dallas
Mavericks. The teams have already met twice this season, as each club won on
its homecourt.
