With Ty Lawson leading the way, the Denver Nuggets are on the verge of matching their longest win streak of the season. They'll seek a ninth consecutive victory Monday night while trying to avenge a road loss to the Phoenix Suns from earlier this season.
Already playing at a high level over the past month, Lawson tied his best scoring performance of the season in a 111-88 rout of Minnesota on Saturday. His 32 points on 12-of-17 shooting, including a 4-for-4 effort from 3-point range, boosted his scoring average to 24.2 over the last 13 games.
Lawson has shot 53.5 percent in that stretch, also averaging 7.7 assists and making 24 of 58 (41.4 percent) from beyond the arc.
"I think he has a lot of confidence, especially on his outside shots," teammate Danilo Gallinari said. "When he has that kind of confidence, I think it's tough to play defense against him because he's quick too and he can find the outlet. He's been playing great for us."
