DENVER -- Andre Iguodala had a double-double in his first home game in a Denver uniform and the Nuggets pulled away late to beat the Detroit Pistons 109-97 on Tuesday night at Pepsi Center. Iguodala got hot in the fourth quarter to finish with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Ty Lawson had 15 points and nine assists and JaVale McGee scored 16 points off the bench for the Nuggets, who had six players in double figures. Greg Monroe had 27 points and eight rebounds and Rodney Stuckey had 17 points for the Pistons.

The Nuggets had a 52-35 rebounding edge and outscored the Pistons 56-44 in the paint. The Nuggets led 70-69 when they pulled away from the winless Pi...

Denver Nuggets seem to never — or hardly ever — do well during the second leg of their back-to-back. Also, their opponent happens to star James Harden who has pretty amazing in his first few games as a Houston Rocket, so predictions were a mixed bag.
