DENVER, March 16 (UPI) -- Kosta Koufos led Denver during a fourth-quarter onslaught that rallied the Nuggets to an 87-80 victory over Memphis.

Denver won its 11th straight game, overcoming an eight-point deficit to start the fourth quarter. The Nuggets held Memphis to 14 points in the final period and finished the game on a 9-2 run.

Koufos scored 18 points and seized 16 rebounds, hitting 7-of-9 from the field. Danilo Gallinari added 15 points and Corey Brewer had 11 for Denver.

Zach Randolph scored 18 points to go with 18 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who had a six-game winning streak snapped.

Memphis had been trying to win its 20th road game this season, something only two other Western Division teams have done during the current campaign.
