The Denver Nuggets' Ty Lawson is one of the toughest defensive assignments in the NBA, and Chicago Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich was his latest victim on Tuesday night. 

With under five minutes to play in the third quarter and his team leading by six at home, Lawson faked as if he was going to cross over then kept the ball with his right hand, throwing Hinrich off balance and sending him to the floor. 

Lawson subsequently hit teammate Timofey Mozgov for a lay-in and the 73-65 lead.
