Ty Lawson, or "Lawesome," as he has been coined on Twitter, drilled a three with four seconds left in overtime last night to lift the Nuggets past the Kings, 119-116, for their fourth straight win.

Denver, playing with Danilo Gallinari and Nene for the first time in several weeks, is now seventh in the Western Conference, 8 1/2 games back of the Thunder.

Lawson finished the game with 16 points, 13 assists and seven rebounds.

Lawson's play topped the NBA's Top 10 list for Monday night's games. Also featured in the countdown are a pair of alley-oops, a John Wall double-clutch jam, and a couple of big stuffs by Chris Andersen and Serge Ibaka.
