Serge Ibaka helped keep the Thunder in it the best he could – without key players such as Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. Ibaka scored a game-high 22 points, including 13 rebounds. In the loss, back-up point guard Sebastian Telfair was as efficient as it gets. He went 7-of-7 from the field, including 4-of-4 from downtown. Telfair chipped in 18 points on the night which is a season-high.

Ty Lawson looks like he’s finding his groove. After a 24 point, 12 rebound performance in the victory over Cleveland Monday night, Lawson collected his second-straight double-double. He finished the night with 15 points on 6-of-13 shooting, tallying 15 assists and 1 steal.

Kenneth Faried was the odd-man out yet again, scoring just eight points. The rest of Denver’s starting five scored in double-figures. Timofey Mozgov was one of them and he looked good. Mozzy scored 17 on 6-of-7 shooting, stuffing the stat sheet with 7 rebound, 2 assists, and 3 blocks. Arron Afflalo chipped in 13 points in the win.


  • Ty Lawson recorded his second-straight double-double (15 points, 15 rebounds).
  • Nuggets even up the season series with the Thunder, 1-1.
  • Denver was +21 with Wilson Chandler out on the floor.

The Denver Nuggets (4-7) resume action Friday night as they host Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans. Tip-off is scheduled for 9:00 PM EST, 7:00 PM MST.
