Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Wilson Chandler returned to Denver's lineup
and helped the Nuggets pull away for a 111-99 victory over the Los Angeles
Chandler strained his right hamstring on the second day of training camp and
had not played in Denver's first six contests. He was a much-needed addition
off the bench -- 12 points and five rebounds -- for a club that had not won
consecutive games until Wednesday.
Timofey Mozgov tied a career high with 23 points, Kenneth Faried added 21
points and 13 rebounds and Ty Lawson contributed 19 points and seven assists
in the victory.
Jordan Hill, Pau Gasol and Steve Blake reach recorded double-doubles in a
losing effort. Hill made a case to stay in the starting lineup with an 18-
point, 15-rebound effort. Gasol finished with 25 points and 10 boards and
Blake logged 15 points and 11 assists.
