DENVER (AP) — Nikola Jokic had 32 points and 12 rebounds, Jamal Murray scored a season-high 31 and the Denver Nuggets defeated the Houston Rockets 129-113.

The win was the Nuggets' third in a row following a home loss last Tuesday against lowly Detroit.

Jokic and Murray combined to shoot 64.7% from the field.

It marked the third time in the past four games Jokic scored more than 30 points. He finished two assists shy of his fourth triple-double this season.

Murray was 11 of 17 from the floor and drained four of his eight 3-pointers.

The Nuggets outscored Houston 62-42 in the paint. Zeke Nnaji matched a season high with 15 points off the bench.

Alperen Sengun led five Rockets in double figures with 18 points.
