Carmelo Anthony scored 38 points in his return from a one-game suspension for refusing to come out of a game last weekend, and he led host Denver past Portland, 106-90, last night.

Anthony logged 38 minutes as he helped the Nuggets avoid falling out of first place for the first time since Dec. 8. Anthony's point total was his second highest of the season and his 16 baskets tied his season high.

Hornets 104, Mavericks 88 - Chris Paul had 27 points and 15 assists, and New Orleans increased its season-best winning streak to six games with a victory over visiting Dallas.

David West scored 19 and Rasual Butler 18 for the Hornets.

Dirk Nowitzki led Dallas with 27 points. Jason Kidd added 13.
