SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Andre Miller scored nine of his season-high 15 points in the fourth quarter and the Denver Nuggets defeated the winless Utah Jazz 100-81 on Monday night.

Ty Lawson had 17 points and Kenneth Faried added 15 points and 13 rebounds for the Nuggets, who outscored the Jazz 30-13 in a dominant fourth quarter.

Utah dropped to 0-8 and remained the only winless team in the NBA.

Miller hit a 3-pointer - he hasn't missed in four attempts this season - and Faried added an emphatic dunk to power a 10-1 run that gave Denver an 82-74 lead with 7:13 to play.

John Lucas III drove for a layup but Miller responded with a pair of nifty baskets in the lane, and the Jazz couldn't get within nine the rest of the way.
