DENVER (AP) -- J.J. Hickson had 19 points and 11 rebounds and the Denver Nuggets overcame a slow start to beat the New Orleans Pelicans 102-93 Sunday night.

Wilson Chandler added 19 to help the Nuggets bounce back from a rare home loss on Friday. They're now 7-3 at Pepsi Center this season after going a franchise-best 38-3 in 2012-13.

Ryan Anderson scored 26 and Austin Rivers chipped in a season-high 17 for the Pelicans, who began a five-game road swing. They were without Tyreke Evans. The versatile guard sat out with a sprained left ankle.

The Nuggets once again received solid production from their bench players, with Nate Robinson leading the way by scoring 14. The reserves are averaging 45.3 points, third-most in the NBA.
