Howard, Jokic lead Nuggets past Pistons 104-91

DETROIT (AP) Markus Howard scored a career-high 20 points, Nikola Jokic had a triple-double and the Denver Nuggets moved closer to a higher playoff seed with a 104-91 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night.

Jokic had 20 points, 15 rebounds and 11 assists for Denver (47-24). The Nuggets improved to 3-0 on a four-game road trip that finishes the regular season.

"We were going to control Nikola's minutes - we wanted to get some quality minutes, but not push him into the 30s - and he ended up with a triple-double," Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. "We'll talk tomorrow about what he'll do on Sunday in Portland."
