Life without the four-time NBA All-Star began with a win last night for the Denver Nuggets, who dressed only nine players because of this week’s trade.

Smith went off for 26 points (six 3-pointers) and eight rebounds, and Lawson chipped in with 21 points, seven assists and six steals. The Griz, who entered the ballgame riding a four-game winning streak, were led by Tony Allen, who also scored 26 and pulled down eight boards.
