Nuggets top Bucks 112-111, get homecourt in Rd 1

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Ty Lawson scored 26 points, including a jumper in the lane with 9.3 seconds left, as the Denver Nuggets clinched home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs with a 112-111 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday.

Wilson Chandler added 21 points for the Nuggets, who can secure the No. 3 seed in the West with one more victory or two losses by the Los Angeles Clippers.

Milwaukee lost its season-high fifth game in a row despite 38 points from Monta Ellis.

J.J. Reddick contributed 20 points for the Bucks, who already clinched the No. 8 spot in the East and finish with a 21-20 record at home.

Reddick missed a 3-pointer from the center of the arc as time expired.
