AI and Melo gave the San Antonio Spurs a surprise One-Two punch they never expected. Anthony scored 30 points and Iverson added 31 as the Nuggets steal Game One on the road. Nene added 13 points and 12 rebounds and Marcus Camby grabbed 10 boards. Denver entered the playoffs having won 10 of 11, and are playing their best basketball right now.
However, the Nuggets aren’t celebrating just yet. Two years ago, they were in the same situation where they won game one, but lost the next four straight. Nuggets will need to stay poised to beat the Spurs in what will definitely be a tough series.

The Denver Nuggets coach returned to the team after spending two days with his son, who had surgery to remove cancerous lymph nodes.
„We were all aware of the situation, with his son and everything“ Nugget forward Carmelo Anthony said after Denver’s 120-115 win over Sacramento on Wednesday night.. „He settled us down by telling us all was well.“
Melo had his 4th straight 30-point game scoring 31. Iverson had a double-double, with 16 points and 10 assists. Nuggets are now a half game behind LA Lakers for the 6th spot. But, do they want to play Phoenix or San Antonio in the first round?
