Nate Robinson netted 21 points off the bench, Timofey Mozgov tallied 20 points and seven rebounds and Kenneth Faried added 17 points and 13 boards for the Nuggets, who have won back-to-back games on the heels of an eight-game losing streak.

"It's only a two-game win streak but it's night and day from what it was," Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw said.
