Nuggets are now 9-2 since Carmelo Anthony trade

ATLANTA (AP) - Nene scored 20 points, J.R. Smith added all of his 15 in the fourth quarter, and the Denver Nuggets ran away to another win, beating the Atlanta Hawks 102-87 Wednesday night.

It looked as if the game would go down to the wire when Zaza Pachulia flipped in a putback, pulling the Hawks to 72-69 with just over 10 minutes remaining.

But Denver dominated the rest of the way, outscoring the home team 30-18. The Nuggets hardly missed in the fourth quarter, making 12 of 18 from the field - including four 3-pointers.

Smith knocked down three of those, part of a 6-of-7 fourth quarter after he took only three shots - and missed them all - over the first three quarters.
