Nuggets 117, SuperSonics 112Posted: Updated:
SEATTLE (AP) _ The Seattle SuperSonics' three-game winning streak at the Key Arena is over. The Sonics ran up against the one-two scoring punch of Carmelo Anthony and Allen Iverson tonight in Seattle, losing to the Denver Nuggets 117 to 112.
Iverson surpassed 20,000 points for his career, becoming the 30th NBA player to reach the milestone. It was Denver's fifth consecutive win, and second in two nights with its two stars together.
Anthony returned last night after serving a 15-game suspension for fighting. In defeat, Sonics All-Star guard Ray Allen was brilliant, scoring 44 points, 22 in the final quarter. Chris Wilcox added 25 points for Seattle.
The Sonics will try to start a new winning streak on Friday night in Seattle against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
