But Denver had no answer tonight for New Orleans center Jamaal Magloire.

The Pelicans were without Anthony Davis, Jrue Holiday (15.2 ppg) and Ryan Anderson (14.6 ppg).

Benjamin Hochman

ALT postgame intro: "Nuggets with a solid effort ... Some great moments ... But in the end, just not quite enough, 99-92 is the final."

Chris Fedor

For the rest of NBA: Think about what it takes to beat #Cavs. Houston was at home. No Kyrie. LeBron missed 20 shots & 8 FTs. Two point loss

Jay King

Over about 21 minutes with Draymond Green at center, the Warriors outscored Boston by 28 points.

99-92 Pels win. Season high 5 game winning streak for the Pelicans. This has been @cromaguerawrite . Enjoy the win.
