Denver snaps 7-game skid with 93-85 win over Pelicans

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Arron Afflalo scored 18 points and the Denver Nuggets snapped a seven-game losing streak, 93-85 over the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night.

Afflalo hit four 3-pointers, the last with 2:32 left to increase Denver's then-tenuous lead to 89-85. After that, the Pelicans were unable to score another point and saw their four-game winning streak end.

Jusuf Nurkic scored 15 for Denver, while Kenneth Faried had 14, highlighted by his soaring dunk over Anthony Davis and Dante Cunningham.
