Jokic scores 29, Nuggets hold off struggling Lakers 127-121

LOS ANGELES (AP) All the Denver Nuggets needed was a trip across the Atlantic Ocean to find their groove.

After snapping a five-game losing streak Thursday with a win over the Indiana Pacers in London, the Nuggets have returned to find home suddenly more accommodating. They held off a furious rally by the Los Angeles Lakers for a 127-121 victory Tuesday night that marked their third straight.

Denver led by 19 late in the third quarter only to see the Lakers close to 120-119 with under two minutes to play. Wilson Chandler responded with a dunk and scored five points in the final 1:40 as the Nuggets hung on.
