Ty Lawson: ‘The basket looked big’
(Ty) Lawson won Denver this game. He was Kobe (Bryant)-like, scoring every imaginable way and doing so with some unflappable swagger. Lawson had made just two 3-pointers in the first five games — but he was 5-for-6 from 3 on Thursday. He scored 15.4 points per game going into game 6. He scored a game-high 32. And he had six assists.
“The basket looked big,” Lawson said.
Lawson said that he flew out his personal shooting coach, Ivory Manning, from Las Vegas to Denver on Wednesday night. The two worked out Wednesday night and Thursday during the day, working on Lawson’s arc. Seemed to work out for the guy.
“My confidence was just strong,” Lawson said.
