DENVER (AP) -- Andre Miller scored each of his 18 points in the second half, including four free throws in the final 10.2 seconds, and the Denver Nuggets edged the Memphis Grizzlies 99-94 on Friday night.
Andre Iguodala scored 20 points for the Nuggets, who came off a grueling eight-day, five-game road trip to win their fourth in a row at home.
Rudy Gay had 21 points for Memphis, which has lost three straight games for the first time this season. Marreese Speights and Mike Conley scored 14 points apiece and Wayne Ellington had 11.
The Grizzlies lost Darrell Arthur at the end of the first quarter when he was struck in the mouth while trying to rebound a missed free throw. Arthur lay on the floor for several minutes receiving treatment from medical personnel before being helped to his feet and walking to the locker room for additional treatment.
Trailing by four at the break, the Grizzlies evened the score at 69 on Ellington's 3-pointer that beat the third-quarter buzzer.
