Lawson has record night as Nuggets clobber Minnesota

DENVER (AP) - Ty Lawson made his first 10 3-pointers Saturday night and scored a career-high 37 points in leading the short-handed Denver Nuggets to a 130-106 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Lawson, who was banged up from Denver's rough-and-tumble loss at Oklahoma City one night before, didn't score until sinking a pair of free throws at the 6-minute mark of the second quarter.

He then hit 10 of 11 from beyond the arc, including six during a 9-minute stretch spanning halftime that turned a tight game (41-39) into a laugher.

Martell Webster and Lazar Hayward led the Timberwolves with 15 points each. Minnesota was without injured All-Star Kevin Love (groin) and center Darko Milicic (left ankle) again.
