    Carmelo Anthony returned from a two-game absence with 34 points against his former team, and the Knicks beat the Nuggets, 112-106, Sunday night to remain the NBA’s lone unbeaten team at home.

    Back in the starting lineup after missing two games with a cut on the middle finger of his left hand that required stitches, Anthony twice made baskets in the final 2:08 after Denver had pulled within 4.

    Jason Kidd scored 17 points for the Knicks, who improved to 8-0 at Madison Square Garden.
