Nuggets 124, Wizards 103

In a game that devolved into a Denver dunk contest, the Nuggets welcomed back starters Kenyon Martin and Chauncey Billups and showed no compunction about beating up on a beaten-down opponent in a 124-103 victory over the Washington Wizards on Friday night.

Carmelo Anthony delivered 23 points, eight rebounds, six assists - and created or finished some scintillating slams that had teammates leaping off their sideline seats for chest bumps. It was a fitting way to celebrate the best 50-game record (34-16) for the Nuggets since they joined the NBA in 1976.

Billups came back from a sprained right ankle to score 16 points against a Wizards team that dressed only nine players because of injury and illness and fell to an NBA-worst 10-40.
