The Denver Nuggets haven't quite overtaken the Toronto Raptors, but they've tied things up at 85-85 in Toronto after three quarters on Wednesday. Ty Lawson has been leading the way for the Nuggets as they've found their footing on offense, scoring 63 points over the past two quarters.
After a relatively weak start, the Nuggets are currently shooting 50 percent from the field for the game while getting to the free throw line at a pretty decent clip. The Raptors haven't shot as well but they've knocked down 9-of-17 shots from beyond the arc to keep things relatively close.
Lawson has been huge for Denver with 26 points on 9-of-15 shooting plus nine assists and two steals. Wilson Chandler is second on the team in scoring with 13 points. DeMar DeRozan leads Toronto so far with 17 points on 6-of-18 shooting. Andrea Bargnani has 16 points, but he failed to score in the third quarter.
