Jordan Farmar led the Nets in scoring with 26 points off the bench. He added two rebounds, three assists and two steals to his totals for the game. Deron Williams had 16 points to go with 13 assists. Kris Humphries had 12 points, nine rebounds, three assists and two blocked shots.
Danilo Gallinari led the Nuggets with 22 points. Denver also had three players off the bench in double figures, including Corey Brewer with 19 points.
This was the opening game of a four game Western road trip. The Nets play in Phoenix on Friday. At 2-9, New Jersey has the basement in the Atlantic all to itself. Only Washington has a record worse than the Nets.
