Nuggets rally in fourth to defeat Clippers in opener, 107-98

LOS ANGELES (AP) A huge reason why the Denver Nuggets missed the playoffs by one game last season was their road record.

The Nuggets opened the new season on Wednesday by taking care of business away from home as they rallied in the fourth quarter and defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 107-98.

"That's what mature basketball teams do. When everything's not going well they find ways to win," said Paul Millsap, who had 11 points and 16 rebounds. "We stayed with it, didn't panic and were able to execute down the stretch."
