Ty Lawson scored 23 points, reserve Nate Robinson added 15 and the Nuggets held off the Timberwolves 117-110.

Nikola Pekovic had 21 points and Kevin Love finished with 19. Minnesotas bench was outscored 47-10 and was overmatched by Robinson and Denvers high-octane reserves. Eight different Nuggets players scored in double figures, including all five starters. "We just came in and allowed them to do whatever they wanted to do at the offensive end. We put up no resistance," Wolves coach Rick Adelman said as he got angry while at the postgame press conference podium. "Theres been all this talk about what kind of team we can be. I dont care about what people talk about or what it looks like on paper. Weve done nothing," Adelman added. "Right now, are you going to just give in?" Ignited by three 3-pointers from Robinson, the Nuggets built a 15-point lead early in the second quarter. Denver stayed hot and shot 63 per cent in the first half, taking a 64-55 lead into the locker room. "Nate came it and gave us a huge lift in the first half," Lawson said. "Thats what we need sometimes. Someone to just come in and take the game over." The Wolves hung around by hitting free throws -- Martin finished 11 of 11 from the line -- and cut Denvers lead to three after Loves dunk with 3:41 to play in the third.

But Minnesota couldnt come up with a defensive stop to finish the rally and allowed Denver to regain control after three straight dunks. The Wolves wouldnt go away, though, and pulled within three after a dunk by Corey Brewer with 1:13 to play. Love missed a 3 that would have tied it on Minnesotas next possession and Lawson swished four free throws in the final minute to beat the Wolves back one last time. Every time the Wolves started coming back, the Nuggets were able to get a couple baskets and halt Minnesotas momentum. "We just need to play ... defence," Love said. Rubio didnt use the same salty language as Love, but he was just as upset about his teams defensive effort. "We havent done anything in this league. This team has the potential to do something, but we just have to commit to be a team on defence." Several Nuggets players said after the game that they knew they could score against Minnesota. Just two weeks ago, Denver also scored 117 in a win over the Wolves. "Theyre more of an offensive-minded team. We just wanted to come out and dominate them offensively," Faried said. "We attacked them. We knew they had slow feet." The Nuggets have won 23 of the teams last 27 meetings. Minnesota didnt have any fast-break points in the first half, but came up with 15 during its second-half comeback. Denver took advantage of Minnesotas 17 turnovers to score 25 points.

He returned to work at the teams headquarters within a few weeks, but eventually was granted an indefinite leave.In his absence, quarterbacks coach Marcus Arroyo — despite having no previous pro coaching experience — has called plays for the sputtering Bucs (2-10), who rank 26th in total offence and 28th in scoring.Throughout these difficult circumstances, our primary concern was for Jeffs health and well-being, Bucs coach Lovie Smith said in a statement released by the team.After speaking with Jeff in recent days, it became obvious that a mutual decision to release him from his contract was the best way forward, Smith added. We wish Jeff continued success in the next phase of his career.Tedford said hes healthy again, stronger for having gone through this temporary setback, and ready to pursue other opportunities.When my health issues arose, I simply tried to ignore them and tthen I made the mistake of twice trying to come back too early, said Tedford, who was Cals head coach from 2002-2012.

However, Tedford feels the offence is on the right track.And while Smith left the door open for a possible return, Tedford said coming back at this point would disrupt the trust and continuity that builds throughout the season in offensive meeting rooms and on the sidelines.I simply could not, in good conscience, become more of an obstacle to Lovie, to Marcus, the offensive staff and the whole organization — after all they have done for me, Tedford added. You just cant go backward. I can see that they are so close to turning the corner, and I dont want to hinder that progress.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
