Lawson's lay-in lifts Nuggets over Clippers
DENVER 106, LA CLIPPERS 104
LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Ty Lawson's driving layup just before the
buzzer lifted the Denver Nuggets to a 106-104 victory over the
Los Angeles Clippers in an exhibition game Saturday night.
Kenneth Faried scored 18 points and Jordan Hamilton added 17 for
Denver. Lawson finished with eight points.
Eric Bledsoe led the Clippers with 25 points, including a
reverse layup with 3.1 seconds left that tied it.
Blake Griffin, who had surgery on his left knee in the
offseason, had six points and seven rebounds in 22 minutes.
Chris Paul did not play for Los Angeles. He is expected to be
cleared for full contact practices within two weeks.
The game was played on The Las Vegas Strip for the first time
since 1981 when the Los Angeles Lakers faced Philadelphia.
