When the Houston Rockets travel to Denver tonight, Nuggets fans will see a familiar face on the Rockets bench with newly acquired forward Kenneth Faried, who spent the first seven years of his career in Denver. Faried has supplied his usual energy for the Rockets (29-21) while contributing 15.2 points and 9.8 boards per game since coming over from Brooklyn. Houston has also enjoyed riding the eye-popping scoring streak of James Harden, who has now scored at least 32 points in 24 straight games. But Denver (35-15) counters with an All-Star of its own in center Nikola Jokic and has posted its best 50-game start in franchise history.
