DENVER (AP) — Kenneth Faried had 24 points and 10 rebounds to help the Denver Nuggets beat New York 110-94 on Tuesday night for their eighth straight win over the Knicks at the Pepsi Center.

Nikola Jokic scored eight of his 20 points in the fourth quarter as the Nuggets had six players in double figures.

Carmelo Anthony finished with 30 points against his former team. He’s now 0-3 when playing at his old stomping grounds since being traded to New York in February 2011.

Kristaps Porzingis was limited to six points in his return after missing a game with a bruised left leg. The Knicks were dealt a blow before the game when forward Lance Thomas hurt his left knee in warmups.
