NBA scores: Rockets win, Grizzlies and Hornets lose

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Recapping Friday's NBA action, where the Rockets beat the Celtics, the Timberwolves dropped the Hornets, and the Grizzlies fell to the Nuggets.

Friday night provided plenty of exciting NBA action, with implications in the Southwest Division and the Western Conference.

Denver Nuggets 99, Memphis Grizzlies 94

In a hard-fought game that came down to the wire, the Nuggets outlasted the Grizzlies to get the win. Rudy Gay saw a game-tying three pointer go in and out with mere seconds remaining in the fourth. The Nuggets rebounded the miss, and two Andre Miller free throws iced the game. Andre Iguodala led the Nuggets with 20 points as Miller had 18 off the bench.

Houston Rockets 101, Boston Celtics 89

The Rockets put together a balanced attack, led by Chandler Parsons and James Harden. After giving up a first-half lead, Houston pulled away late in the fourth. The win moves Houston to .500, and a half game ahead of the Dallas Mavericks in the standings.

Minnesota Timberwolves 113, New Orleans Hornets 102

The Timberwolves bested the Hornets, led by Nikola Pekovic's 31 points. Andrei Kirilenko added 21. Austin Rivers scored a career-high 27 points in the loss. The Hornets remain firmly in last place in the Southwest Division.

Oklahoma City Thunder 113, Sacramento Kings 103

Isaiah Thomas scored 23 points in the fourth quarter to bring the Kings within five points, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Oklahoma City's dominant first half. The Thunder have now won 10 straight games.
