For the third-straight game, Ty Lawson sat out. It finally caught up to the streaking Denver Nuggets. Their winning streak came to a close last night with a 110-86 loss to the New Orleans Hornets. The Nuggets had won their previous 15 games.
Lawson is battling heal pain. The team hopes to have him back soon, and they will need to have him back soon. Despite the win streak, the Nuggets are guaranteed only a spot in the playoffs - not their seed. They are fighting for a three seed in the West and cannot afford to go without Lawson for long.
Lawson has been a surprising find in the NBA. He is one of the better point guards in the league, but he hasn't reached the status to make him cost-prohibitive in Denver. Lawson is averaging 16.9 points and 6.9 assists per game this season.
