Nuggets Beat a Heat Team Missing James
DENVER (AP) -- Reserve J.R. Smith scored 28 points and Carmelo Anthony added 21, leading the Denver Nuggets to a 130-102 win over a Miami Heat team missing LeBron James on Thursday night.

Nene contributed 17 points and Chauncey Billups had 13 assists as the Nuggets routed a second straight opponent. They beat Phoenix by 34 points two nights ago.

Chris Bosh scored 24 points and Dwyane Wade added 16 for Miami, which lost two in a row for the first time since dropping three straight in late November.

James sat out after spraining his left ankle the night before in a loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said before the game that James was "feeling a little better." He will likely try to play Saturday in Chicago.
