The Los Angeles Lakers came away with a huge win on Monday night as they beat the Denver Nuggets 93-89 to snap a three-game losing streak.

Second-year guard Talen Horton-Tucker came up with the game-clinching bucket with 15.1 seconds remaining shortly after throwing up a wild backwards shot that missed badly.

Perhaps the initial errant shot was why superstar teammate Anthony Davis decided to give Horton-Tucker a friendly slap across the head as the Nuggets called a timeout.

Horton-Tucker finished the game with 10 points and three assists, while Davis ended his night with a team-high 25 points to go along with seven rebounds and three blocks.

Things won’t get any easier for the Lakers as they have a matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday night followed by a Friday game against the desperate Portland Trail Blazers.
