The smallest player on the court stood in a scrum underneath the basket.

Andrew Bynum, the Lakers' 7-foot center, held the ball in the game's opening minute after getting his shot blocked by Denver Nuggets counterpart Timofey Mozgov.

That's when Ty Lawson, all 5 feet 11 of him, reached in and blocked another shot by Bynum.

The little guy was just starting to come up big.

Lawson's tiny handprints and footprints were all over Denver's 113-96 victory over the Lakers on Thursday night at the Pepsi Center in Game 6 of their first-round series.
