Denver Nuggets Team Report – November 30
=== Denver Nuggets Team Report – November 30 ===
(Sports Network) – Earl Boykins scored 18 of his 22 points in the first half
and Bryon Russell finished off the Hornets with 12 points in the second as the
Denver Nuggets downed New Orleans, 76-67, on Monday at the Pepsi Center.
All of Russell’s points came from beyond the arc, including a pair of threes
on consecutive trips down the floor to put Denver ahead for good. Andre Miller
added 14 points and dished out eight assists for the Nuggets, who notched
their sixth win in seven tries despite the absence of an injured Carmelo
Anthony suffered a sprained ankle in Denver’s win Saturday night against
Houston and is questionable for Thursday’s tilt against fellow sophomore
LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Denver center Marcus Camby blocked four shots and pulled down a game-high 11
boards for the Nuggets, who finished 7-of-11 from three-point territory and
are 7-3 at home so far this season.
Boykins has scored in double-digits in 10 of Denver’s 14 games this season. He
is averaging 13.6 points and 4.1 assists per game.
The Nuggets are off until Thursday when they host Cleveland. Last season, the
Nuggets swept the two contests between the clubs.
