DENVER (AP) — Wilson Chandler scored 19 points, including a big 3-pointer and three free throws late in the game, and the Denver Nuggets held off the Minnesota Timberwolves 117-113 on Friday night for their third straight win.

Kenneth Faried added 16 points and 10 rebounds for Denver, and Ty Lawson had 14 points and 10 assists. Lawson then left with 32 seconds remaining when Corey Brewer inadvertently hit him in the eye with his hand as he was defending the guard on a drive into the lane.

Kevin Love led the Timberwolves with 28 points and Kevin Martin, who missed Wednesday's game against Cleveland because of the illness, added 27 points.
