Player grades from Nuggets win at Detroit

Pistons forward Tobias Harris was held to no field goals on seven attempts and two points, the first time all season he failed to reach double digits. He scored nine in the first quarter and his confidence was brimming from the opening tip. He's been satisfied with the effort in two of his team's last three games. "And then if they scored, it was how we wanted them to score". Or his own flawless 7-of-7 outing from the field, resulting in 20 points as he continues to thrive with extended minutes. Trey Lyles put as second straight high-scoring game in the books with 20 points on 7-of-7 shooting overall, including 3-of-3 from the 3-point line. "Two weeks. I have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that in two weeks, we went from being a good team to being very bad". (I've) got to push the pace and play my game.

Lyles, who's seen an uptick in playing time since Paul Millsap was lost to a sprained left wrist on November 19, continues to play well in extended minutes.

He finished a flawless 7-7 from the field and 3-3 from three-point range. "Forcing plays, no energy, just as a unit, no chemistry, no energy". Beasley tallied eight points in 24 minutes and played exceptional defense. "I would say this was our best job staying in coverages and doing what we said we were going to do in the game plan with the exception of (Detroit's Langston) Galloway coming off those screens".

Pistons: Johnson was demoted to deep in Van Gundy's new rotation, not entering the game until the Pistons were down by 22 in the third quarter.

As a team, Denver had one of its better defensive showings of the year as well. Drummond finished with five points, 10 rebounds, and three assists, while Plumlee finished with 10 points and 13 rebounds. The Nuggets have already used 10 starting lineups.

With Detroit's drive-and-kick game stalled, and Harris not providing his usual production, they were held to 35.4 percent shooting as a team. The Nuggets forced Detroit into 21 turnovers, which they turned into 22 points.

"Guys were missing a lot of shots, so there were a lot of rebounds out there", Plumlee said. A Pistons team that entered Tuesday ranked seventh in the National Basketball Association in 3-point field-goal percentage (37) made just five of their first 17 attempts before sinking four in the final quarter when the outcome was all but decided.

"It was incredible", Murray said of his team's defense. We were talking, we were communicating. "We were locked in over the past couple of days and it paid off today". The Nuggets are 1-3 on a six-game road excursion and a meager 4-10 away from home this season.

Thanks to a few key performances, the Denver Nuggets were able to get back on track with a blow out win of 103-84 over the Detroit Pistons.
