DENVER (AP) - Arron Afflalo hit three free throws with 0.6 seconds left in regulation and Ty Lawson made a 3-pointer with four seconds remaining in overtime as the Denver Nuggets rallied for a 119-116 victory over the struggling Sacramento Kings on Monday night.
Afflalo finished with a career-high 32 points for the Nuggets, who improved to 4-0 since the All-Star break.
Lawson came up with the clutch basket for the second straight night, finishing with 16 points and 13 assists.
Marcus Thornton and Tyreke Evans each had 27 points for the Kings, who dropped their four straight on the day they announced they had extended the contract of coach Keith Smart through the 2012-13 season.
