DENVER -- Randy Foyes first season in Denver got off to a slow start. Justin Abdelkader Team USA Hockey Jersey . Its suddenly on the upswing. Foye scored a season-high 23 points, connecting on seven 3-pointers, and the Nuggets routed the Boston Celtics 129-98 on Tuesday night for their third straight win after an eight-game losing streak. "Even when I was missing shots, I just constantly said, This is not me," said Foye, who converted 8 of 17 shots from the field, including 7 of 12 from 3-point range. That was a big improvement from an overall conversion rate of 35 per cent from the field in his previous 14 games. "I knew the only way I could get through something like that is you put the effort forward and thats what I continued to do," Foye said. "I just knew I was going to fight through it, and tonight I felt like my old self." Teammate Ty Lawson sensed Foye was on the verge of an offensive breakthrough. "I told him, Youre getting wide open shots. All youve got to do is set your feet and knock em down," Lawson said. "Thats what hes been working on, getting his shot right. Hes been showing improvement and now hes making everybody better. And for us to win like we want to win, he has to knock down shots." Lawson and Kenneth Faried followed Foyes lead. Faried had 21 points and 13 rebounds and Lawson added 19 points and 13 assists for the Nuggets, who sent the Celtics to their fifth loss in a row and reversed a 106-98 loss at Boston on Dec. 6. The Nuggets returned to .500 (17-17) with the victory, though the team said after the game that Wilson Chandler was day to day after straining his left groin late in the third quarter. "I think it was motivation from the last game," Lawson said. "They jumped on us 39-15, something crazy, in the first quarter last time. We wanted to make a point that youre not going to just do that to us and get away with it and thats what we did. Foye was making shots, and spreading their defence out and Faried and J.J (Hickson) were taking care of things down low." Jerryd Bayless, acquired earlier in the day by Boston as part of a three team trade that also involved Memphis and Oklahoma, had 6 points in 25 minutes in his Celtics debut. Jeff Green led Boston with 17 points. Brandon Bass had 15 and Avery Bradley 12 but the 31-point loss stood out as the Celtics worst defeat in the all-time series with the Nuggets. "Tonights just not good enough. Its not good enough," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. "Were going to have to play really well to beat these teams on the road. Everybodys going to have to play close to an A game, and thats everybody. Today was disappointing." Both teams lost a key figure to ejection during a testy third quarter, when the Nuggets led by as many 32 points, their biggest lead of the night. Bostons Jared Sullinger was tossed with 8:43 left in the third quarter after he picked up two flagrant fouls within 23 seconds of each other. Nuggets coach Brian Shaw drew two technicals in succession and was ejected with 2:43 left in the third quarter by referee Rodney Mott for arguing with him over a call during a timeout. Faried, Wilson Chandler and Timofey Mozgov all had dunks off alley-oop passes in the third quarter, and Faried converted a three-point play with 4:21 left in the period to put the Nuggets up by 32 points, their biggest lead of the night. Boston never led at any point in the game. "We didnt get back on defence. We gave up a lot of dunks and uncontested layups. Were not playing hard enough," Bostons Jordan Crawford said. The Nuggets built a 68-45 lead in the first half, closing the second quarter with a 10-run that included a 3-pointer by Foye and back-to-back dunks off the fastbreak by Faried and J.J. Hickson. Denver made 10 of its 3-pointers in registering a season-high in first-half scoring, including four by Foye. NOTES: The Nuggets said Chandler would undergo a precautionary MRI scan Wednesday because the groin strain occurred on the same side as a previous hip surgery. ... Andre Miller remains on personal leave from the Nuggets and the team has given no indication on when or if hell rejoin the club. Miller has been away from the team since a verbal clash with coach Brian Shaw during a New Years Day loss to Philadelphia over his lack of playing time. ... Foye has scored in double figures in each of his last six games. ... Boston gave up season highs in points to an opponent in consecutive games. The previous high came two days ago when Oklahoma City scored 119. ... The Celtics have lost nine of their last 10 games against the Nuggets at the Pepsi Center. Kyle Palmieri Jersey . He learned about pressure and expectations at the 2010 Games in his hometown of Vancouver. His next mission is to build on that experience at his next Olympic appearance in Sochi, where he plans to ride the momentum from the teams strong start to the season. John Carlson Jersey .Under the agreement announced Monday, the Cuban defector is guaranteed $68.5 million over six seasons.Tomas gets a $14 million signing bonus that is payable within 30 days of the deals approval by Major League Baseball, and then salaries of $2 million next year, $4 million in 2016, $6 million in 2017 and $10 million in 2018. http://www.hockeyauthenticusaonline.us/Ryan-Suter-Jersey/ . - Young and old.ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. - Russell Henley has a reminder on his phone that goes off every day at noon to tell him hes the best putter in the world. He didnt need one Friday in the McGladrey Classic.Playing for the first time since Sept. 14 at the Tour Championship, Henley one-putted 10 greens on the Seaside course at Sea Island and tied his personal best on the PGA Tour with a 7-under 63 to take a one-shot lead into the weekend.The 25-year-old from Georgia would not have seen that coming.When he teed off in the morning chill, he opened with a bogey on No. 10 and was simply trying to keep warm. The only 63 on his mind was whether the temperature would get that high. It did, and he got hot with his best club in the bag — the putter.After the first hole, I was just thinking, All right, youve got to hang in there and just be patient and hopefully get something going. And I did, Henley said.He managed to turn a horrible drive into a birdie on the 18th hole at the turn, the start of six birdies over his last 10 holes. That put him at 9-under 131, one shot ahead of Brendon de Jonge (64), Brian Harman (67) and Andrew Svoboda (66).That kept the round going, and then I felt pretty good with my putter, Henley said.Will MacKenzie (68), Mark Wilson (66) and Fabian Gomez (66) were two shots behind. Defending champion Chris Kirk hit his first drive of the round into a hazard and made double bogey, but he recovered with five birdies for a 67 that left him only four shots back.Henley has won in each of his first two years on the PGA Tour, and it was that inaugural win at the Sony Open that brought so much attention to his putting. Hes not suggesting he is the best putter in golf, though it doesnt hurt to tell himself that every day.I would say Im a great putter. Tim Thomas Jersey. And I think if you want to be a great putter, you have to believe that youre a great putter, Henley said.Thats why he added the phone reminder.I try to just believe in my putting and enjoy putting, and people always tells me Im a great putter, so its pretty easy to keep the confidence going when youre doing that, Henley said. I just wish they would say that about the rest of my game.He doubts they will ever say that about his acoustic guitar.Henley has been fiddling with a guitar since he was a teenager, spent more time with it in college and when he turned pro, and now is at least good enough to fulfil a fantasy. During a friendly bet he won with country singer Darius Rucker, he was able to go on stage with him Wednesday night at Sea Island during a concert and play Wagon Wheel, even singing with him on the chorus.I still cant believe it actually happened, Henley said.More than enjoying just his putting, its key for Henley to enjoy his golf. He did well enough after winning the Honda Classic to advance to the Tour Championship, meaning a hectic end to last season. Henley was worn out and needed the five-week break.I decided to rest and take a few weeks off until I got the itch, Henley said. Im kind of a worthless golfer if Im not excited to play. And I feel like Im excited to play again.DIVOTS: Tournament host Davis Love III had a 68 to make the cut. ... Justin Thomas and Nick Taylor each shot 66 to make the cut on the number at even-par 10. Because 88 players made the cut, there will be a 54-hole cut Saturday. ... Scott Piercy, who missed a big chunk of last season with an elbow injury, had a second straight 67 and was three shots behind. He tied for seventh last week in Las Vegas.
