PHOENIX — The Denver Nuggets used a 21-9 third-quarter run to ease past the Phoenix Suns 123-113 Saturday night for their first road win since Dec. 23.

The Nuggets are 7-3 in their past 10 games and are posting the league’s fourth-best offense over that span. But after another night where his team gave up triple digits and saw its opponent convert one uncontested layup after another, Nuggets coach Michael Malone said his team took a step backward in its 10-point win in the desert.
