DENVER -- Lob City moved to Colorado for a night, but it was the Denver Nuggets taking over the role as the high-flying team. The Los Angeles Clippers, for one game, brought brick city, and it resulted in their first loss in 36 days. Danilo Gallinari scored 17 points, Andre Miller had 12 points and 12 assists in his first start of the season, and the Nuggets ended the Clippers' 17-game winning streak with a 92-78 win Tuesday night. Blake Griffin scored 12 points, and DeAndre Jordan had 11 points and 11 rebounds for the Clippers, who lost for the first time since falling at home to the New Orleans Hornets on Nov. 26.

Los Angeles shot 5-for-29 (17.2 percent) from 3-point range and at one point missed 10 straight. "...
