Notebook: Nuggets 123, Rockets 116


Michael Kelly, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Apr 10, 2014 12:55 AM - Updated Thu Apr 10, 2014 12:55 AM

THE FACT: The Denver Nuggets clinched a winning record at home for the 11th straight season.

THE LEAD: Randy Foye had 30 points and 15 assists, Kenneth Faried had 23 points and the Denver Nuggets jumped out to a big lead before holding on to beat the Houston Rockets 123-116 on Wednesday night.

Timofey Mozgov had 22 points for the Nuggets (34-44), which stopped a two-game skid with the win.

Jeremy Lin led the Rockets (52-26) with 18 points, all of them in the second quarter. Chandler Parsons had 16 for Houston, which had eight players score in double figures.

The Rockets trailed by 22 early in the fourth but behind the reserves cut the deficit to 118-114 with 2:24 left. Foye banked a shot high off the backboard to stop the rally.

QUOTABLE: "The second unit did a tremendous job of fighting back, sticking with it, making shots and playing like we needed to play."
-- Rockets guard James Harden

THE STAT: The Nuggets attempted 101 shots in the game. In three meetings with Houston this season they are averaging 102 per game.

TURNING POINT: Foye's third quarter kept the Rockets at bay and gave the Nuggets a big push heading into the fourth. Foye had 22 in the period on 7-for-7 shooting. He made four 3-pointers and all but buried Houston.

QUOTABLE II: "I was trying to be aggressive. It feels good to go out there tonight and know that I was a huge part of the victory."
-- Randy Foye

HOT: Faried and Mozgov did most of their damage in the first half, scoring 19 and 18, respectively. They consistently beat Houston's frontline down the court for easy baskets, and they attacked the rim in the first and second quarters.

QUOTABLE III: "Faried and Mozgov in the first half, Randy Foye in the second half, and we were never able to make them uncomfortable."
-- Jeremy Lin

NOT: Houston's defense has been generous lately. The Rockets have held an opponent under 100 just twice in the last 16 games and they're allowing an average of 126 points over the last three games.

QUOTABLE IV: "Our defense is bad. The ball's going wherever it wants. We can't control the ball. The bigs are running down the middle of the floor, posting up in the middle of the paint. They just outran us, outworked us early."
-- Houston coach Kevin McHale

GOOD MOVE: Without center Dwight Howard in the middle, the Nuggets exploited the lane with Mozgov and Faried. Denver outscored Houston 66-46 in paint points.

BAD MOVE: The Rockets got a scare when Harden took a knee to the shin in the third quarter. He was down for a minute, got up to hit two free throws before going to the locker room. He returned later in the third quarter but sat out the fourth.

QUOTABLE V: "For a couple of seconds my leg was numb. It was very painful. I tried to go out there and play on it but just get some rest and ice on it."
-- James Harden

ROOKIE WATCH: Houston guard Troy Daniels, called up from the D-League earlier in the day, scored all 12 of his points in the fourth quarter when the Rockets made a push. He had scored five total points in two previous games but came up big and nearly helped Houston overcome a big deficit.

NOTABLE: Foye is the first Nuggets player to have at least 30 points, 15 assists and five rebounds since Allen Iverson had 44, 15 and five on March 17, 2007. ... Houston's Omer Asik had 12 points and 12 rebounds to record his third straight double-double. ... Denver's Quincy Miller blocked four shots for the second straight game. ... The Rockets attempted 40 3-pointers.

UP NEXT: For the Rockets, Friday @ Minnesota, Saturday vs. New Orleans, Monday vs. San Antonio. For the Nuggets, Thursday @ Golden State, Saturday vs. Utah, Tuesday @ L.A. Clippers.
