Kenneth Faried scored 11 points (3-6 FGA/ 5-5 FTA) with nine rebounds and an assist in the Nuggets' 122-97 win over the Suns Friday.
Faried's scoring and rebounding are down from the past two seasons, but this is a step in the right direction, especially considering he played just 20 points Friday.

Faried's season averages won't get any help tonight, but that he did all this in just 20 minutes is a good sign. He's been very inconsistent this season, even during Denver's recent hot streak. The Nuggets' frontcourt depth works against him, as he's only crossed the 30 minute threshold three times this season despite recently signing the richest contract of any of Denver's bigs.
