Billups leads Nuggets to 2-0 lead over HornetsPosted by Inside Hoops
The AP reports: Chauncey Billups led the Nuggets to another blowout of the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday night, scoring 31 points in Denver’s 108-93 win. The best-of-seven series shifts to New Orleans for Game 3 on Saturday night with the Nuggets holding just the third 2-0 edge in their 33-year NBA history… Carmelo Anthony, quiet in Game 1 with just 13 points on 4-of-12 shooting, scored 22 points and dished out nine assists. J.R. Smith added 15 points. David West scored 21 points to lead the Hornets, but he needed 20 shots to do it. Peja Stojakovic added 17 points and Chris Paul had 14 points and 13 assists. Once again, the Hornets were hounded relentlessly by Denver’s defense, finding few answers to Kenyon Martin, Chris Andersen, Nene and Dahntay Jones.
