DENVER (AP) - Al Harrington scored 15 points, Rudy Fernandez had 12 points to go with eight assists, and the Denver Nuggets won their third straight by beating the Sacramento Kings 110-83 Wednesday night.
Timofey Mozgov and Arron Afflalo added 11 points apiece for the Nuggets, who have won their last six meetings against the Kings in Denver.
Playing the second of three games in three days, the Kings played from behind most of the night and lost guard Tyreke Evans for the last two quarters after he became ill.
The Kings, who remained winless in three road games this season, got 26 points from DeMarcus Cousins and 23 points from Marcus Thornton. Cousins was playing in his second game since returning from a one-game banishment for, the team said, demanding a trade. Cousins has denied making a trade demand.
