Recap: Denver vs. Detroit

Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Aaron Brooks had 27 points and 17 assists and the Denver Nuggets topped the Detroit Pistons 118-109 on Wednesday for their fourth win in five games.

Randy Foye added 22 points for the Nuggets, Kenneth Faried had 15 and Darrell Arthur scored 13.

The Pistons lost their 11th road game in a row and fell to 3-13 in their last 16 overall. They were led by 22 points from Greg Monroe and 18 from Rodney Stuckey.

Detroit forward Josh Smith was ejected after picking up two technical fouls in the third quarter.

"We just lost a player so other guys have to step up. That's part of being professional," said Stuckey. "Things happen throughout the course of a game. It's our job as teammates to have his back."

Brooks started at point guard in place of Ty Lawson, who was out with a sinus infection.

J.J. Hickson, Evan Fournier and Timofey Mozgov all scored 11 points for Denver and Hickson led five Nuggets with at least five rebounds, pulling down 11.

"We had good balance with everyone contributing on the boards against a good, physical team," said Nuggets coach Brian Shaw.

It took almost the entire third quarter but Denver turned an 11-point deficit into a one-point lead going into the fourth.

The Nuggets pushed their lead to 13 with a 17-4 run keyed by five straight points from Foye and capped by an Arthur 3-pointer with six minutes left.

The Pistons got as close as four down the stretch but Hickson followed with a layup and Anthony Randolph finished off a three-point play to seal the win for Denver.

The Pistons led 28-27 after the first quarter and went up by as many as 11 in the second. They led 61-54 at halftime.
