Oklahoma City, OK (Sports Network) - Ty Lawson led a balanced scoring attack
with 25 points and the Denver Nuggets ran their season-long winning streak to
13 games with a convincing 114-104 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Lawson was one of six players in double figures for the Nuggets, who received
an all-around performance out of Andre Miller, as the 15-year veteran posted
20 points, nine assists and seven rebounds.
Kenneth Faried added a double-double of 13 points and 15 rebounds, while also
registering three blocks. Danilo Gallinari scored 13 points as Denver pulled
within 3 1/2 games of Oklahoma City for the Northwest Division lead in taking
the final three games of the season series.
The Thunder also came in hot with wins in 11 of their last 13 games, but
faltered in the second-half on Tuesday to drop just their fifth game at home
Kevin Durant ended with a game-high 34 points and Russell Westbrook followed
with 25 points and six assists in the defeat.
