Nuggets slow Harden in 93-87 win over Rockets

By  | 

HOUSTON (AP) -- Ty Lawson scored 21 points and Kenneth Faried had 16 points and 16 rebounds to help the Denver Nuggets to a 93-87 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night.

James Harden had a tough night for the Rockets and finished with a season-low 15 points on 5 of 15 shooting.

A dunk by Andre Iguodala put Denver up by six, before a pair of free throws by Jeremy Lin made it 91-87 with 1:21 remaining. Lin got knocked in the nose on the foul and was bleeding. He had to shoot the free throws with paper stuffed in his left nostril.

Faried blocked a layup attempt by Harden and Chandler Parsons missed a 3-pointer seconds later.

Faried got the rebound on the miss and dunked it on the other end to secure the win.
