Denver, CO (Sports Network) - The Nuggets fans booed Carmelo Anthony when he was on the court and derisively asked where he was in the fourth quarter.

Anthony, in his first game in Denver since orchestrating a trade to New York two years ago, gingerly limped to the locker room in the third quarter with the Nuggets already cruising to their 10th straight victory, this one a 117-94 shellacking of a Knicks club that suffered another blow to their already depleted roster.

Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari, two of the four players Denver received in the epic Anthony trade, fittingly led the Nuggets with 24 and 16 points, respectively.

Andre Iguodala checked in with 14 points, Ty Lawson added 13 and Kenneth Faried totaled 11 with 10 rebounds in the lopsided win -- Denver's 14th straight at home.

The Nuggets outscored New York in the paint, 62-24 and had 10 more second- chance points. One of the reasons behind the discrepancy came late in the first half when Knicks All-Star center Tyson Chandler suffered a knee contusion and did not return.

Anthony, who is dealing with his own knee issues that recently sidelined him three games, scored only nine points on 3-of-12 shooting in front of a hostile crowd.

By the time he exited, the Nuggets were in control, scoring at least 31 points in each of the first three frames.
