Rank 'Em: NBA Power Rankings

Created: April 7, 2008, 9:45 AM

Carmelo Anthony and the Nuggets have given up an average of 130 points over the last four games.

Fighting for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference, the Nuggets needed to pull out a win Sunday against the Sonics to keep pace. Led by Carmelo Anthony's 38 points, all of Denver's starters scored in double figures, but it wasn't enough to stop the Sonics' rookie tag-team. Kevin Durant's season high of 37 points and Jeff Green's season high of 35 helped down the Nuggets in double overtime, 151-147.

In the East, with their bench leading the way, the Detroit Pistons locked up the No. 2 seed by beating the Heat 91-75 in Miami.
