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 this season.

Kevin Durant ended with a game-high 34 points and Russell Westbrook followed with 25 points and six assists in the defeat.
