DENVER -- Arron Afflalo led seven Nuggets in double figures with 22 points, and Denver won its fourth straight at home by beating the Phoenix Suns 122-97 on Friday night.

Timofey Mozgov added 13 points as the Nuggets snapped a five-game losing streak to the Suns, who took the first of their home-and-home series on Wednesday after sweeping four meetings between the teams last season.

Eric Bledsoe had 16 points to lead Phoenix, which had an off night shooting, connecting on 38.8 percent of its shots from the field. Gerald Green added 12 points.

SAN ANTONIO -- Tony Parker had 27 points and the San Antonio Spurs held on to beat the Sacramento Kings 112-104 on Friday night, their second straight victory without Gregg Popovich.

Popovich missed his second straight game following a recent undisclosed minor medical procedure. The veteran coach's status is unknown for the team's upcoming four-game road trip, which begins Sunday in Boston, but he did visit with the team Friday morning.

Assistant coach Ettore Messina led San Antonio to its sixth straight victory. Messina said everything he is doing has Popovich's seal of approval.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Before Friday's game against Orlando, Indiana coach Frank Vogel said David West had been eager to return to the court.

"He's not a guy that likes to miss games. From the day he sprained his ankle he's been eager to get out there," Vogel said.

The power forward missed the first 15 games of the season because of an ankle injury -- one of several injured players that contributed to a 1-6 start for the Eastern Conference finalists from last season.

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Russell Westbrook scored 32 points in his first game back from a broken right hand, and the Thunder rolled past the Knicks 105-78 on Friday night.

Westbrook was injured in the second game of the season and hadn't played since. He returned in grand fashion, making 12 of 17 shots, including 3 of 4 3-pointers, and adding eight assists and seven rebounds in just 23 minutes before checking out late in the third quarter because the Thunder were in control.

Amar'e Stoudemire had 20 points and nine rebounds for the Knicks, who shot 39 percent and scored a season-low point total in their third straight loss. Carmelo Anthony, a top 10 scorer in the league, missed his second straight game with back spasms. He said before the game he was unsure when he would return.

HOUSTON -- Near the end of a seven-game road trip, there was some concern that the Los Angeles Clippers might be running out of gas.

Turns out that there was no need to worry.

Blake Griffin had 30 points and 10 rebounds and Jamal Crawford added 21 points to help the Clippers coast to a 102-85 win over the injury-depleted Houston Rockets on Friday night.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Milwaukee Bucks coach Jason Kidd knew he was going to need more than a few players to step up against Detroit on Friday night.

He got even more than he expected.

The Bucks, playing without John Henson and Zaza Pachulia, didn't have a single starter in double figures scoring, but still managed to beat the hapless Pistons 104-88.

ATLANTA -- Mike Budenholzer wasn't going to let the Atlanta Hawks relax after their strongest defensive half of the season, especially when he detected a lack of intensity to open the second half.

Budenholzer called a full timeout after New Orleans' first possession of the second half, and the Hawks got the message that no letdown would be tolerated.

Led by Jeff Teague's 26 points and the strong defense in the first half, the Hawks answered every second-half challenge from New Orleans and beat the Pelicans 100-91 on Friday night.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Coach Steve Kerr knew when he arrived at Golden State that Marreese Speights would figure into the mix somehow this season with the Warriors.

He never envisioned how big of an impact Speights would have in the team's 13-2 start.

"I figured he was a guy who could give us a spark off the bench every now and again, but I didn't see him as our full-time backup center. ... but Mo has been way better than I expected," Kerr said.
