Nuggets beat Thunder

DENVER, Colo — Randy Foye scored a season-high 24 points and the Denver Nuggets beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 101-88 Thursday night for their fourth win in a row after an eight-game losing streak.

Evan Fournier had 19 points and Ty Lawson added 16 points and 14 assists for Denver. Kenneth Faried grabbed 14 rebounds.
