DENVER – Andre Miller had 21 points and 14 assists, and Marcus Camby blocked two key shots in the final 90 seconds to help Denver to a tougher-than-expected 125-116 victory over Atlanta.

Carmelo Anthony scored 26 points, Camby had 24 points and 12 rebounds and Earl Boykins had 20 points in Denver’s highest-scoring game of the season.

Al Harrington had a season-high 35 points for Atlanta. Tyronn Lue finished with 16 points and eight assists and made a pair of 3-pointers late in the third to keep the Hawks within striking range. Royal Ivey played scrappy ball and finished with 14 points.
