“I’ve become comfortable taking those shots at the end,” said Ty Lawson, who finished with 16 points and 13 assists after his game-winning 3-pointer in overtime Monday night beat the Sacramento Kings. “I was working on that little pull-up shot during the break.”
Arron Afflalo finished with a career-high 32 points but none bigger than his three free throws that helped the Denver Nuggets pull out an improbable win Monday night over the Sacramento Kings and improve to 4-0 since the All-Star break.
