The Indiana Pacers lost their eighth straight road game in ugly fashion against the Denver Nuggets, shooting just 30.7%, unable to take advantage of Denver's own offensive woes. The Pacers led early in the fourth quarter, but a 10-0 run by the Nuggets kept Indiana fighting from behind the rest of the night. The difference in the score came in the paint, where Denver outscored the Pacers 48-18, a huge advantage in a game where neither team could score.
David West had 19 points and 10 rebounds, but after hitting everything early, he missed everything late, to go 8-22 from the floor. C.J. Miles had 16 off the bench on 6-19 shooting. Lavoy Allen had six points and 10 rebounds and Solomon Hill scored 11. Danilo Gallinari scored 19 to lead the Nuggets.
