Raymond Felton added 16 points, seven assists and five boards as the Nuggets posted their fifth straight home victory.

Wilson Chandler chipped in with 15 points and Kenyon Martin finished with 14 points and 11 rebounds for Denver, which improved to 3-1 since last week's blockbuster trade that dealt superstar Carmelo Anthony to the New York Knicks.
