DENVER (AP) - Ty Lawson goes down with a torn right heel, the Denver Nuggets keep right on winning. Danilo Gallinari tears an ACL, they don't miss a beat.
The starless but selfless Nuggets have four chances left to set a franchise record with their 55th win, starting at Dallas on Friday night, before they try to parlay their deep roster into a deep playoff run.
Although Gallinari is out for the season after injuring his left knee last week, Lawson hopes to return this weekend to test out his pain threshold and knock off some rust before the playoffs begin.
The Nuggets hardly missed their top two scorers Wednesday night when they set a franchise record with their 21st straight home win with a 96-86 thumping of the West-leading San Antonio Spurs.
