SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- Ty Lawson scored 27 points, Wilson Chandler had 20 and the Denver Nuggets defeated the short-handed Sacramento Kings 125-117 on Sunday night.
It was the second consecutive victory for the Nuggets, who went ahead late in the third quarter and never trailed again. Denver was coming off a 109-96 home win Saturday night over Indiana, which has the best record in the NBA.
The Kings, who have dropped three straight and five of six, played their second straight game without leading scorers DeMarcus Cousins (ankle sprain) and Rudy Gay (Achilles strain). The two combine for nearly 43 points per game.
Chandler scored seven points in the fourth quarter and Kenneth Faried finished with 15 points and 11 rebounds for the Nuggets.
