The season looked doomed early on, as the team lost four of their first five games. New coach Brian Shaw had been tinkering with his lineup and his decisions appeared to be questionable at times, especially when he decided to start games with JaVale McGee, Anthony Randolph and J.J. Hickson. Predictably, the experiment quickly came to an end, Kenneth Faried was back in the starting lineup, and Denver has gotten back on track to a 4-4 record after beating the Minnesota Timberwolves 117-113 on Friday for its third consecutive victory.
Lawson had a tough night, going just six-of-16 from the floor with six turnovers, but was still instrumental in keeping the winning streak alive with his 14 points and 10 assists. Unfortunately, he took a shot in the eye from former teammate Corey Brewer in the final minutes of the game, and it did not look pretty:
Goood win back at it tomm… My eye looks crazy lol
