Post , who were playing after a game against San Antonio
LOS ANGELES -- Nate Robinson knew he would get a technical foul for hanging on the rim long after his dunk. He stayed up there to underline a point. After a miserable month, the Denver Nuggets are having fun again -- this time at the expense of the struggling Los Angeles Lakers. Ty Lawson had 20 points and 12 assists, Timofey Mozgov added 20 points and seven rebounds, and the Nuggets beat Los Angeles 137-115 Sunday night for their second straight win after an eight-game skid. Robinson scored 21 points, while Wilson Chandler and Kenneth Faried added 17 apiece as the Nuggets dropped 77 points on the Lakers in the second half. Robinson defiantly rubbed it in with 2:37 to play, clinging to the rim after his dunk put the Nuggets up by 24 points. "We just found our niche and found our energy," said Robinson, who scored 12 during the Nuggets 44-point fourth quarter. "We had a tough month, you could say. Its just that time to turn a new leaf, and just continue to play like we did tonight, and hopefully we can have a snowball effect and we can go streaking again." With an overwhelming second-half performance, Denver earned a win for coach Brian Shaw in his first game back at Staples Center to face the Lakers as a head coach. The longtime Lakers guard and assistant coach was passed over for the top job in Los Angeles after Phil Jacksons departure. Shaw believes the last few days have been cathartic for the Nuggets, who frayed at the seams during their skid. They played their third straight game without point guard Andre Miller, who is on personal leave until Monday after clashing with Shaw on the bench Wednesday night. "Stress, grieving, whatever it is, if you hold it in, it will eat you up from the inside," Shaw said. "I thought we aired out a lot of things, and that clarified for everyone where they stood. ... Two-game win streak, but its night and day from what it was prior to those last two games." Seven Nuggets scored in double figures in their fifth consecutive win over Los Angeles, scoring the most points by any Lakers opponent this season. Denver easily took control with a 17-2 run early in the fourth quarter, remaining unbeaten against the Lakers since November 2012. The Nuggets outrebounded Los Angeles 58-38 and hit 12 3-pointers, while the Lakers went 3 for 21 on long-distance shots. Pau Gasol had 25 points, 10 rebounds and five assists amid another round of trade rumours with the injury-battered Lakers, who have lost seven of eight. The 7-foot Spaniard has been sought by Cleveland in recent days for what essentially would be a money-saving move by the wealthy Lakers, and he acknowledges the uncertainty isnt helpful. Gasol said he played with "just a love for the game and a sense of pride and loyalty to my teammates and myself. I wanted to play my best and give it everything I have." Fourth-string point guard Kendall Marshall had nine points and a career-high 17 assists in his second straight start for the Lakers, who are without Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar due to injury. Marshall set a franchise record with 32 assists in his first two starts for Los Angeles. "I think we kind of unraveled a bit, and they kept coming and kept scoring and kept hitting difficult shots," Marshall said. At 14-20, Los Angeles chances of a playoff run are already waning in the continued absence of Bryant, who expressed dismay about the latest uncertainty around his 7-foot Spanish teammate before the game. Los Angeles has lost seven of its last nine games at Staples Center, but will play just one home game in the next 22 days. "Its tough. Theres no sugarcoating it," Lakers coach Mike DAntoni said. "Were in a hole, and we put ourselves in this hole. Well get guys coming back (from injury). We just have to keep playing hard, keep your head down, go through it." NOTES: Dozens of Auburn football fans watched the game from Staples Centers lower bowl on the night before the BCS championship game at the Rose Bowl.

That was two games too many for LeBron James. The reigning NBA MVP had 21 points, eight assists and 14 boards for his first double-digit rebounding game of the season, leading the Heat to a 103-82 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday night. Dwyane Wade had 19 points and five rebounds in his return from a two-game absence and the Heat controlled the glass until garbage time after getting hammered on the boards by Detroit and Chicago in consecutive losses. James 14 boards were the most hes had for the Heat in a regular season game. "Dont talk about it, just go do it," James said. "To me, when I say it, I go and make it happen." Kevin Martin scored 19 points for the Timberwolves. But they sorely missed Kevin Love, who was with his family following the death of his grandmother on Wednesday night. The Wolves shot a franchise-low 29.3 per cent while the Heat made 55 per cent of their shots to overcome 20 turnovers. "We didnt play very tough tonight," Martin said. "The champs showed us how its done." The Heat havent lost three in a row in the regular season since January 2012. And James wasnt about to revisit that slide. "We dont like losing back-to-back games, and we definitely dont want to lose three in a row," James said. "So it was a good pick-up game after the loss to Chicago." The Heat were bludgeoned on the boards 49-27 by the Bulls on Wednesday night and 46-34 by the Pistons on Tuesday night. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra spoke on Saturday morning of needing all five players on the floor to attack the glass because they dont have a singular rebounding force like the Wolves do. Despite having to go to the bench earlier than usual with two fouls in the first quarter, James still managed to rack up 10 rebounds before the first half was over. He posted his highest regular-sseason rebounding total since his last season in Cleveland, when he grabbed 16 against Sacramento on Dec.dddddddddddd 23, 2009. Minnesota just barely won the rebounding battle, 45-44. But the Heat won on the defensive glass, 37-28. The night was punctuated in the third quarter when Wade threw a pass off the glass to a soaring James for a 71-57 lead. "He came out with force," Spoelstra said of James. "And it was on both ends. He was active, he was over the top with his athleticism. Some of the rebounds were up over the crowd, playing out of the post, but also in transition playing in a different motor." Wade missed the previous two games, first with knee soreness and then because of an illness. He suffered a scare in the first quarter when he appeared to bang his right knee as he crashed to the court. He writhed in pain for a few minutes, but was able to get up and keep going. The Heat play at Detroit on Sunday, but it wasnt certain that Wade would play. Spoelstra likes to rest him on back-to-backs to reduce the wear and tear on his knees. Nikola Pekovic had 18 points and 12 rebounds for the Wolves, who were playing after a game against San Antonio in Mexico City on Wednesday night was postponed due to smoke in the arena. Minnesota point guard Ricky Rubio struggled mightily with one point on 0-for-4 shooting, six assists and six turnovers. "It seems like we were scared," Rubio said. "That cant happen." NOTES: Chris Bosh had nine rebounds for the Heat. ... Love is expected to practice Sunday and be in uniform for the Wolves next game against the Pistons on Tuesday. ... The Heat stayed in a hotel just across the street from the arena, but took a bus for the morning shootaround as most teams do. Spoelstra usually walks when hes here. But a wind chill that dipped to 15-below zero made him think otherwise. "I had to make it from the door to the bus," Spoelstra said. "Those 10 steps were about as tough as it gets."
