DENVER, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- Linas Kleiza came off the bench Tuesday to nail a season-high 25 points in Denver's 114-105 victory over Milwaukee.
Carmelo Anthony led six other Nuggets in double figures with 17 points in the Nuggets' third straight win and sixth in their last seven outings.
"We got a win and that's all that matters," said Kleiza. "We're definitely feeling good about ourselves now. We're just trying not to have any let-down games."
Charlie Bell led the Bucks' losing effort with a season-high 25 points as Milwaukee had six players in double figures.
"We weren't ready to play tonight," said Bucks Coach Scott Skiles. "It was just a very poor effort all the way around from everybody."
