However, the true motivation for the Nuggets guard Monday night was to beat the Grizzlies much the same way Memphis handled Denver recently. "The last couple years when we come down here, they outworked us, they beat us up a bit," Lawson said. "We made it a point this time to make sure it didn't happen."
