Lawson hits winning shot as Nuggets edge Thunder
Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Wilson Chandler carried Denver with a career- tying scoring effort, but it was Ty Lawson whose deciding bucket pushed the Denver Nuggets to their fourth straight win, a 105-103 decision over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Lawson, who was just 4-of-13 prior to his winning bucket with 0.2 seconds remaining, used a crossover to create some space before rising above Thabo Sefolosha on a pull-up jumper. He finished with 11 points and seven assists.
Chandler posted 35 points on 13-of-19 from the field, hitting on 6-of-7 from long distance. Corey Brewer and Andre Miller each contributed with 14 in the triumph.
The Thunder were seeking a fourth straight victory as well, but came up just short after rallying from a 12-point fourth quarter deficit. Russell Westbrook scored a game-high 38 points and Kevin Durant finished with 25 to go with 14 rebounds in the setback.
