Adjust font size:

Carmelo Anthony matched the NBA record of scoring 33 points in a quarter in the Denver Nuggets' 116-105 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday.

Anthony tied the NBA mark of 33 points set by San Antonio's George Gervin in the second quarter against New Orleans on April 9,1978.

Anthony broke the franchise record of 32 set by David Thompson against Detroit, also on April 9, 1978.

Anthony notched mark in the third and finished with a season-high 45 points and Chauncey Billups added 22 points in Denver's eighth straight win over Minnesota.

Al Jefferson had 26 points and 12 rebounds, and Randy Foye also scored 26 points for Minnesota, which has lost seven straight games and two in a row since Kevin McHale took over as head coach Monday.
