Randy Foye scored a season-high 24 points and the Denver Nuggets beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 101-88 Thursday night for their fourth win in a row after an eight-game losing streak.

It was the second time in two games that Foye, who hit six 3-pointers, established a season high. He was coming off a 23-point effort in which he made seven 3s in Denver's victory over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday.

The Nuggets overcame Kevin Durant's 30 points in beating the Thunder for the first time in three tries this season. The teams meet a final time in Oklahoma City on March 24.

Evan Fournier had 19 points and Ty Lawson added 16 points and 14 assists for Denver. Kenneth Faried grabbed 14 rebounds.

Reggie Jackson scored 13 and Derek Fisher 12 for the Thunder.
