Tyler Hansbrough led the Pacers with 27 points and 10 rebounds, and Paul George had 17 off the bench.
The Nuggets (25-18, 20-5 home) embark on a five-game road trip that sees them land first in Washington on Tuesday and then finish it in New Jersey on Jan. 31. Denver Stiffs' Nate Timmons hopes the Nuggets can go undefeated during the road trip in order to make the team's road record look somewhat better (currently 5-13 on the road).
