Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony dunks against the Seattle SuperSonics during the third quarter in Denver Tuesday, March 30, 2004. The Nuggets beat the SuperSonics, 124-119.
Take that, LeBron. Carmelo Anthony scored a career-high 41 points Tuesday night, matching James for the most by a rookie this season, and the Denver Nuggets moved into a tie for eighth place in the West with the victory.
“I couldn’t let LeBron get 41 without me getting 41,” said Anthony, who had 18 points in a first-quarter shootout with Rashard Lewis and kept it going after Lewis cooled. Anthony finished 19-for-29.
