Ty Lawson got word that Kobe Bryant was — how should we put it? — displeased.

"I heard he was kind of (ticked off)," Lawson said of the Lakers superstar, who had three monster games but lost the Western Conference player of the week award Monday to the Nuggets point guard.

But there was Lawson, in overtime Monday night, hitting a Kobe-like 3-pointer — frighteningly fearless — a dagger with four seconds left, giving Denver the lead for good against Sacramento.

The Nuggets won 119-116 at the Pepsi Center, a game that Lawson said, "At one point, we had no business winning."
