LOS ANGELES (AP) — Wilson Chandler scored 19 points and Ty Lawson had 16 points and 16 assists, helping the Denver Nuggets beat the Los Angeles Lakers 101-94 in overtime on Sunday night.
Arron Afflalo added 15 points for the Nuggets, who have won five of six following a 1-6 start that was capped by consecutive double-digit losses to Portland.
The Lakers, coming off a 140-106 drubbing at Dallas, began a four-game homestand with their seventh straight loss to the Nuggets, despite 27 points from Kobe Bryant. The NBA’s No. 4 career scorer made only four of 14 shots after the third quarter and finished 10 for 24.
The losing streak against Denver matches the Lakers’ longest against any club since an eight-game drought against Portland from Feb. 18, 1993, through Jan. 9, 1995.
