Carmelo Anthony Hits Game-Winning Buzzer Beater In "Must-Win" Game At Toronto (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Carmelo Anthony, who called Friday's game at Toronto a "must-win game" after three Nuggets losses in a row this week, came up huge in Canada.

The AP reports:

Carmelo Anthony buried an 18-foot fadeaway at the buzzer to lead the Denver Nuggets to a come-from-behind 97-96 win over the Toronto Raptors on Friday night.

After Anthony missed his first attempt, the loose ball was batted to Nene. He swung it to Chauncey Billups, who fed Anthony inside the arc. Anthony dribbled once and hoisted a jumper that dropped through as the horn sounded.
