NBA: Rockets lose to Nuggets; Jeremy Lin bleeds


Ty Lawson scored 21 points, while Kenneth Faried had 16 points and 16 rebounds to help the Denver Nuggets to a 93-87 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday.

James Harden had a tough night for the Rockets and finished with a season-low 15 points on five-for-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 minute, 21 seconds 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.

Chandler Parsons missed a three-pointer and Faried got the rebound on the miss and dunked it on the other end to secure the win.
