Nuggets coach Michael Malone tweaked his rotation following Wednesday's loss to the Clippers in Los Angeles by inserting Trey Lyles into the starting lineup for Mason Plumlee.

DENVER — The Denver Nuggets appeared to be in danger of dropping their fourth game in a row early in the third quarter Friday. With a little less than 10 minutes to go in the period, they trailed the Memphis Grizzlies by two.
