Denver Downs Efes Pilsen, 118-102When he was interviewed during the Denver Broncos-Baltimore Ravens Monday Night Football Game, Carmelo Anthony said that he didn't know anything about the Nuggets' Tuesday night Turkish opponent. Recently, ignorance has not been bliss for U.S. teams facing strong international teams, but the Nuggets did post a 118-102 win against Efes Pilsen. Anthony led Denver with 21 points and added six rebounds. He did not play in the fourth quarter. Americans Horace Jenkins (who played for William Paterson, a Division III school) and Marcus Haislip (Tennessee) led Efes Pilsen with 26 and 23 points respectively. The Nuggets built a 16 point second quarter lead but were only ahead 55-44 at halftime.
