Corey Brewer used to bring energy to the Denver Nuggets.

On Saturday, the forward used that energy to help a tired Houston Rockets team beat his old teammates.

Brewer returned to Pepsi Center with 24 points off the bench and guard James Harden scored 18 of his game-high 28 points in the second half and the Rockets beat Denver 114-100.

Brewer helped pick up a squad that was playing for the fourth time in five nights.
