Notebook: Nuggets 137, Pelicans 107


Michael Kelly, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Apr 03, 2014 1:24 AM - Updated Thu Apr 03, 2014 1:30 AM

THE FACT: The Denver Nuggets outscored the New Orleans Pelicans 45-6 from 3-point range. The 15 made 3-pointers by the Nuggets tied their season high.

THE LEAD: Kenneth Faried scored a career-high 34 points and also had 13 rebounds and three blocks to lead the Denver Nuggets to a 137-107 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night.

Aaron Brooks came off the bench to hit six 3-pointers, which accounted for all of his 24 points. Ty Lawson had 14 points and 12 of the Nuggets' 34 assists, two short of the team high for the season.

Tyreke Evans had 27 points to lead the Pelicans, who have lost three straight after winning five in a row. Anthony Morrow scored 17 points off the bench for New Orleans.

QUOTABLE: "We didn't let up. That's what we've been trying to learn from this season. This season we've had games in control and in the second half we let up. This game we didn't let up. We kept it in control, put our foot down and finally broke somebody's neck."
-- Kenneth Faried

THE STAT: The Pelicans held a 28-11 lead in free-throw attempts in the first half and scored 19 of their first 39 points from the foul line. New Orleans hit 35 free throws in the game, 10 more than Denver attempted.

TURNING POINT: The Nuggets' defense was the difference. They had 10 blocked shots in the first half, including a career-high two from Brooks. In one sequence Timofey Mozgov blocked Evans' shot, and on the Pelicans' next possession Brooks blocked a fast-break layup attempt by7-foot-2 center Alexis Ajinca. Denver tied a season high with 12 blocks.

QUOTABLE II: "It's been a while since I got up there. It felt good."
-- Aaron Brooks, on his block on Ajinca

HOT: Faried was dominating from the start and didn't let up. He nearly had a double-double at halftime (18 points, nine rebounds) and continued his high-energy game in the second half. He had 28 points by the end of the third and drew an offensive foul on Jeff Withey.

QUOTABLE III: "He's giving us that energy that we need, so it's great to see. He's a young player and for him to finish the season strong the way he is right now will definitely carry over into his summer when he goes to play with the U.S. team."
-- Nuggets coach Brian Shaw, on Faried.

NOT: The loss of Anthony Davis hurt any comeback attempt for New Orleans. Davis left the game in the first half with back spasms and didn't return. His absence took away the team's best low-post defender on a night when Denver's big men were playing well.

QUOTABLE IV: "He was great to start but when he sat down it locked up on him and he couldn't recover. I was close to pulling him to start the game but he was like, 'Coach, I'm good, I can go.' When he played he looked good, but when I took him out everything locked up on him. When I put him back in he couldn't do it so I pulled the plug."
-- Pelicans coach Monty Williams, on Davis

GOOD MOVE: Shaw had a heart-to-heart talk with Faried and Lawson about showing leadership in the final eight games of the season. Both players appeared to take the conversation to heart with strong performances.

BAD MOVE: The New Orleans defense was passive and slow to react all game. Denver had 71 points at intermission, the most the Pelicans have allowed in the first half this season. They nearly gave up that many in the second half.

QUOTABLE V: "They just ran up and down the court and did what they wanted to do. They did make some unbelievable 3s. They were on fire tonight."
-- Tyreke Evans

ROOKIE WATCH: Withey had 13 points, five rebounds and four blocks in nearly 30 minutes. He saw more playing time in the second half with Davis sidelined.

NOTABLE: Faried needed just 26 minutes, 46 seconds to reach his totals. He is the first NBA player since 1985-86 to have 34 points and 13 rebounds in less than 27 minutes. ... Denver outscored the Pelicans 21-6 on points off turnovers. ... The Pelicans have lost 19 straight road games to Northwest Division opponents. ... Evans also had eight rebounds. It was the 10th time in his career he has had at least 27 points and eight rebounds. ... Denver scored 30 or more points in every quarter.

UP NEXT: For the Pelicans, Friday @ Utah, Sunday @ Portland, Wednesday vs. Phoenix. For the Nuggets, Friday @ Memphis, Sunday @ Houston, Wednesday vs. Houston.
