Faried, known for his high energy, sprinted down the court ahead of the defense and Lawson keen to the moment put the pass dead on for the easy jam. Watch it in the video above.
This lob pass is clearly over the half court line and tied the game at 6-6, in the first quarter of Thursday night’s game between the Nuggets and Chicago Bulls, in Denver.
Lawson finished with 10 points and Faried dropped 12 points and grabbed 11 boards. J.J. Hickson added 14 with nine rebounds for Denver, which hasn’t lost to Chicago at home since Feb. 8, 2006.
Nuggets snapped Chicago’s five-game winning streak with a 91-87 win. Denver will open a home-and-home set with Dallas on Saturday at the Pepsi Center.
