Denver Nuggets send Charlotte Bobcats to 15th straight loss

Ty Lawson left game with strained left Achilles

DENVER -  

Kosta Koufos scored a season-high 16 points, and Kenneth Faried and Andre Iguodala added 15 points apiece as the Denver Nuggets beat Charlotte 110-88 and sent the Bobcats to their 15th consecutive loss on Saturday night.

JaVale McGee added 14 points, and Danilo Gallinari had 12 for Denver, which won its sixth in a row at home since its only loss there -- 98-93 to Miami on Nov. 15.

The Nuggets played most of the game without starting point guard Ty Lawson who was held out of the second half with a strained left Achilles.

Lawson had five assists and a rebound and was scoreless on 0-for-5 shooting.

Charlotte, playing the second of a back-to-back set on the road, was without injured guards Gerald Henderson and Ben Gordon. Henderson sustained a bruised shin during the second half of a 115-100 loss at Golden State on Friday. Gordon missed a second consecutive game because of soreness in his right knee.

Ramon Sessions had 23 points to lead Charlotte. Byron Mullens added 16
