Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson enjoyed one of his best games of the season Wednesday night at Atlanta.
He would gladly trade his individual success for a victory when Denver continues its five-game road trip Friday against the Indiana Pacers.
When the Denver Nuggets played at Madison Square Garden last season, Kenneth Faried had one of the best seats in the house.
It was still difficult being a spectator.
Faried, a Newark, N.J. native, was trying to gain traction as an NBA rookie and did not play when the Nuggets beat the New York Knicks 119-114 in double-overtime on Jan. 21.
Less than a year later, he is averaging a double-double (12.8 points, 10.4 rebounds) and has started all 19 games for the Nuggets this season.
