Miller picks up slack for Nuggets

DENVER (Ticker) -- A true team effort helped the Denver Nuggets pick up rookie Carmelo Anthony.

On a night when Anthony struggled, Andre Miller scored 17 points to lead six Nuggets in double figures in a 94-86 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Anthony, who came in averaging 17.1 points, was saddled with three fouls that limited him to three first-half minutes and did not have a basket until his 3-pointer gave Denver a 72-67 lead entering the fourth quarter.

The Nuggets built a big lead without him before Miller and the rookie helped hold off a late rally by the Bucks.

After Michael Redd's layup pulled Milwaukee within 81-80 with just over five minutes to go, Denver ran off eight straight points. Miller capped it with a jumper for an 89-80 advantage with 2:33 left.

Rookie Francisco Elson scored 14 of his 15 points in the first half and Anthony finished with 13 and 11 rebounds despite 2-of-11 shooting. Voshon Lenard netted 14 points, including a 3-pointer with 46 seconds remaining that opened a 92-83 cushion.

The Nuggets improved to 4-1 at home and 4-2 against Eastern Conference foes.
