Aaron Brooks added 24 points off the bench and Ty Lawson finished with 14 points and 12 assists for the Nuggets, who snapped a four-game losing skid.

"Well it's finally nice to be on this side of the game like that for a change. I thought we did a pretty good job all the way around in terms of our pace [and] sharing the ball. I just thought all around our guys looked like a cohesive unit tonight," Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said.

Tyreke Evans had 27 points and eight rebounds and Anthony Morrow finished with 17 points off the bench for the Pelicans, losers in three straight.

"We didn't play well to start the game. They shot the ball really well. Like I told our guys, in the month of March we set a high bar for how we can play regardless of who is on the floor," said Pelicans coach Monty Williams. "That is what we expect and they all agreed. We didn't play well tonight
