Charlotte entered Friday’s game looking to put an end to its three-game losing streak as it hosted the 17-7 Denver Nuggets, who entered the game on a league-best, seven-game winning streak thanks in large part to a Top-3-ranked defense.

Despite having seven different players score in double-figures, led by a season-high 19 points off the bench from Frank Kaminsky, Charlotte was unable to keep the Pelicans five-time All-Star in check as he nearly recorded a triple-double with 36 points, 19 rebounds and a career-high eight assists in a 119-109 New Orleans victory at Spectrum Center
