DENVER (AP) — Jerami Grant scored a career-high 29 points and Nikola Jokic had a season-best four steals to help the healthy Denver Nuggets beat the Detroit Pistons 115-98.
The Nuggets are now 40-18. That ties their best start through 58 games in their NBA franchise history.
They had the same mark a season ago on their way to winding up with the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference.
Derrick Rose and Christian Wood each had 20 points for Detroit. The Pistons have now lost seven straight games.
