Notebook: Nuggets 118, Pistons 109


Michael Kelly, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Mar 20, 2014 2:03 AM - Updated Thu Mar 20, 2014 2:03 AM

THE FACT: The Detroit Pistons have lost 11 straight road games. They have not won away from home since beating Washington on Jan. 18.

THE LEAD: Aaron Brooks stepped into the starting lineup and scored a season-high 27 points and dished out a career-high 17 assists and the Denver Nuggets beat the Detroit Pistons 118-109 on Wednesday night.

Backcourt partner Randy Foye added 22 points for the Nuggets, who overcame the loss of point guard Ty Lawson to win their fourth in the last five games.

Greg Monroe had 22 points and Rodney Stuckey added 18 for Detroit, which continued to struggle under interim head coach John Loyer.

Detroit led by as many as 11 in the third quarter but ran out of gas against Denver. Brooks had 17 points and 11 assists in the second half and also scored 17 after intermission.

QUOTABLE: "I just learned the offense and I am making better decisions. Being older and seeing stuff a little different helped me expand my game a little more."
-- Aaron Brooks, on his big night

THE STAT: The two teams had a combined 12 players score in double figures. Denver had seven and Detroit five.

TURNING POINT: The Nuggets turned up their defense in the third quarter and Detroit struggled from the field. Denver hit 61 percent of its shots in the period, and four of its last six. The Nuggets went on a 10-2 run to close out the quarter and take their first lead since the last seconds of the first.

QUOTABLE II: "When you sit there and watch guys marking it and shooting it and feeling pretty good, you've got to rush them, you've got to get up in them. We kind of watched a few guys."
-- John Loyer

HOT: Brooks was still learning the offense when he was acquired at the trade deadline last month. Wednesday, he showed he is fully integrated into the system with his best game of the season and one of his best in his career.

NOT: Lawson has had some hard luck against Detroit this year. He fractured a rib last month in a road loss to the Pistons, costing him nine games. Wednesday he left shootaround suffering from a sinus infection and headaches. He was initially cleared to start but was scratched just prior to tip-off.

QUOTABLE III: "Ty walked off the court (after warmups) and sat down said, 'I'm not going.' I thought he was joking. I was like, 'Quit playing around. Get back out there.' Everybody contributed and it was a team victory."
-- Aaron Brooks

INSIDE THE ARENA: Comedian/actor Mike Epps was in attendance.

GOOD MOVE: With Lawson out, Nuggets coach Brian Shaw leaned heavily on Brooks and Foye. Brooks played 46:36 and Foye 44:21, but neither seemed bothered by the heavy workload. It was Foye's 12 points in the third that sparked a comeback.

BAD MOVE: Pistons forward Josh Smith picked up two technical fouls with 6:53 left in the third quarter. Smith and Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried were called for a double technical, and then Smith was hit with another before play resumed. He walked off the floor but was glaring at official Eric Lewis as he headed to the locker room.

QUOTABLE IV: "He was talking but the ref told him to stop before, he kept talking, got another tech. That was a momentum change when that happened. Losing him for the rest of the game obviously puts us at a disadvantage in any game, at any point we lose Josh."
-- Greg Monroe, on losing Smith to an ejection

ROOKIE WATCH: Detroit's Kentavious Caldwell-Pope struggled from the field -- he was 2-for-11 -- but did some dirty work underneath, grabbing a career-high 10 rebounds.

NOTABLE: Brooks' 17 assists tied Lawson for the most by a Nuggets player this season. Lawson has done it twice. ... Pistons guard Will Bynum had 12 points and 10 assists off the bench. It was his sixth career double-double and the first time doing it on the road. ... Denver is 14-1 when it shoots better than 50 percent from the field. ... Detroit center Andre Drummond didn't play because of a neck injury suffered Friday against Indiana. ... Denver forward Wilson Chandler had an injection into his sore left hip and did not play.

UP NEXT: For the Pistons, Friday @ Phoenix, Saturday @ L.A. Clippers, Monday @ Utah. For the Nuggets, Friday @ Dallas, Sunday vs. Washington, Monday @ Oklahoma City.
