Now THAT'S Carmelo Anthony basketball...

Well, at least one Denver team showed up in the second half today!

I don't have time to post a lot about tonight's exciting win over the Bulls, but I think most Denver Stiffs readers would agree that this was Carmelo Anthony's best game of the season hands-down. I've always thought that trying to get Melo to become a better rebounder, a better passer and get him to the free throw line more is more fruitful than trying to turn him into a good defender, and tonight was evidence of why that's the case.

Kenyon Martin, Nene and Chauncey Billups were terrific, as well. Just terrific. And give George Karl credit for getting the Nuggets to shake off a slow start and really put the clamps on defensively in the second half.

Way to go, Nuggets! Denver sports fans desperately needed something to feel good about tonight.
