Kings-Nuggets notebook


By Michael Kelly, for NBA.com
Posted Thursday March 31, 2011 12:43AM

THE FACTS: Ty Lawson scored 20 points, J.R. Smith and Danilo Gallinari had 17 each as the Denver Nuggets shook off a sluggish start to beat the Sacramento Kings 104-90 on Wednesday night.

QUOTABLE: "Sometimes that can be a good thing if you're struggling. But we weren't struggling, so it made us sluggish. We can't complain about that now because we have no days off."
-- Nuggets guard Raymond Felton, on the team's five-day layoff before Wednesday.

THE STAT: Lawson scored an efficient 20 points. He took only nine shots and hit all five of his free throws. In contrast teammate Al Harrington needed 19 shots to score 15 points.

TURNING POINT: The Nuggets turned up their defense in the fourth. Chris Andersen and Smith took charges, and Wilson Chandler's block of Samuel Dalembert led to a fastbreak dunk for Gallinari that gave Denver an 84-79 lead with 5:28 left.

HOT: Marcus Thornton continued his strong play since coming to the Kings in a trade with New Orleans. The second-year player had 16 of his 27 points in the first half and hit five 3-pointers.

NOT: Denver rookie Gary Forbes was getting playing time in the absence of Arron Afflalo but as the season winds down Nuggets coach George Karl is relying on his veterans and using Forbes sparingly.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Since missing 19 games with plantar fasciitis in his left foot, Sacramento guard Tyreke Evans has been playing well. He nearly had a triple-double Tuesday and Wednesday he had 22 points and seven assists off the bench.

GOOD MOVE: Smith drove to the basket more than he stepped back behind the 3-point line. He turned in one of his better games, scoring 17 points and grabbing five rebounds to go with four assists.

BAD MOVE: With a chance to give the Kings a 78-77 lead, Omri Casspi missed two free throws and the Nuggets went on a 16-6 run to ice the game.

QUOTABLE II: "They started making plays. We kind of ran out of gas."
-- Thornton.

INSIDE THE ARENA: Denver Broncos Hall of Fame quarterback -- and current team executive -- John Elway was in the stands signing autographs.

ROOKIE WATCH: DeMarcus Cousins couldn't take advantage down low when Denver's best post defender, Kenyon Martin, left the game with the flu. He finished with 11 points and four rebounds.

NOTABLE: The Nuggets have won 10 straight at home and are 13-4 since the blockbuster trade brought Chandler, Felton and Gallinari to Denver.

UP NEXT: For the Kings, Friday vs. Denver, Sunday vs. Utah, Tuesday @ Houston. For the Nuggets, Friday @ Sacramento, Sunday @ L.A. Lakers, Tuesday vs. Oklahoma City.
