NOTES: The Nuggets failed to break 100 points for the first time in the last 14 games. ... The Celtics had only 10 players active for the game. They signed forward Terrence Williams to a 10-day contract and hoped to have him available, but he did not get clearance from his team in China in time for Rivers to submit his lineup before the game. "It hasn't come through yet so we couldn't put him on," Rivers said of the letter. "I think we have to call China. It'll happen when it happens." Williams did take part in Boston's morning shootaround Tuesday. ... The Nuggets got Gallinari and Andre Iguodala back in the lineup after both missed the previous two games. Gallinari was out with a sinus infection, and Iguodala suffered a strained neck in the triple-overtime loss in Boston. Iguodala scored just one point in 29 minutes Tuesday. ... Lawson came into the game averaging 28 points, nine assists and two steals in his previous three games. He also was shooting 64 percent from 3-point range and 62 percent overall. ... Pierce needs 16 free throws to pass Charles Barkley for 11th in NBA history. He went 5 for 5 from the line Tuesday.
