Nuggets blow out Nets for 7th straight victory

NEW YORK (AP) - Timofey Mozgov had 17 points and a career-high 20 rebounds in another superb effort by the Denver bench, and the Nuggets raced by the Brooklyn Nets 111-87 Tuesday night for their seventh straight victory.

Kenneth Faried and Jordan Hamilton each added 15 points for the Nuggets, who got 57 points from the NBA's second-highest scoring second unit. That wasn't quite the 72 they rang up against Toronto on Sunday, but it was more than enough to dominate the third quarter against the short-handed Nets.

Denver outscored Brooklyn 31-15 in the period that has given the Nets season-long problems, putting it away with a 15-0 run midway through the quarter.

Joe Johnson scored 22 points for the Nets, who still haven't won consecutive games this season and fell to 5-13 heading into their nationally televised first meeting Thursday with the just-a-little-worse Knicks (3-13).
