Nurkic, Barton lead Nuggets past Pelicans, Davis, 107-102

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Denver coach Mike Malone decided the Nuggets should not in fact do whatever it takes to stop Anthony Davis.

Instead, the Nuggets stuck to their usual defensive principles against New Orleans and it paid off - barely.

Jusuf Nurkic scored 23 points, Will Barton added 22, and Denver survived a dominant performance by Davis to defeat the Pelicans 107-102 in both teams' regular season opener Wednesday night.
