Guard Randy Foye scored a season-high 24 points, guard Ty Lawson added 16 points and 14 assists as the Denver Nuggets beat the Oklahoma City Thunder, 101-88.

Guard Evan Fournier came off the bench to score 19 for the Nuggets, who won their fourth in a row following an eight-game losing streak.

Forward Kevin Durant scored 24 of the Thunder's 51 first-half points and a game-high 30 points as they dropped their second consecutive game.

Durant scored half of his points from the free-throw line, where he was 15-for-16.

Oklahoma City (27-9) has been a .500 team since losing guard Russell Westbrook to a right knee injury in late December. (Compiled by Ben Everill; Editing by John O'Brien)
