Nuggets news

The Lakers have missed the playoffs just five times in their 64 years of existence, just twice in 33 years under owner Jerry Buss. ... Wilson Chandler missed his seventh consecutive game for Denver with a strained left hip, while Rudy Fernandez still is sidelined with a strained lower back. ... John Kuester also coached the Lakers in February while Mike Brown served a one-game suspension. Kuester was the Detroit Pistons’ head coach for the last two seasons before getting fired last summer. ... Matt Barnes got a technical foul with 2:24 left for arguing a call, but Arron Afflalo missed a free throw that would have cut the Lakers’ lead to three points with the ball.
