If the Nuggets were to beat the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 4 on Sunday night, coach Mike Brown was determined that Ty Lawson would not be the player responsible.

Lawson dominated Game 3, scoring 25 points with seven assists and no turnovers, after which Brown gushed about the Nuggets point guard. On Sunday night, however, the Lakers did a much better job containing Lawson. He was held to 11 points on 5-of-13 shooting.

Lakers guard Ramon Sessions limited Lawson off the dribble. When Lawson did beat him to the paint, the Lakers' big men helped out, shutting off his lanes to the hoop.
