New Orleans
Denver

[DENVER] — The Denver Nuggets played host to the New Orleans Pelicans last night and the homeside took care of business. A 122-106 win has the Nuggs and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps Denver's record up to 38-41 on the season, while the loss drags New Orleans's down to 33-46. Though a win's a win and Nuggets fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Gary Harris's 20 points, 6 rebounds, 9 assists, 0 blocks and 1 steals in 37 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Ask anybody, however - Harris included - and the most important part is that the Nuggets walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Joining Harris in the winning effort was Jamal Murray. Had it not been for Murray rounding out the Nuggs's attack with 30 points, 4 rebounds and 5 assists of his own, we may have been looking at a different outcome.

Denver's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Pelicans, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Nuggs will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Nuggs will be a date with the Oklahoma City Thunder while the visiting Pelicans will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Golden State Warriors.
