    Ty Lawson scored 26 points, including a jumper in the lane with 9.3 seconds left, and 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 night. It was a wild finish at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Monday night, as the host Milwaukee Bucks and visiting Denver Nuggets battled back and forth in a nip-and-tuck fourth quarter that saw 65 points scored, three ties and 12 lead changes in the final 12 minutes. Rather than pull back to drain the clock or trigger a coach-called action, Lawson continued to press his right-hand dribble against the defense of Ellis, entering the paint before stopping on a dime inside the foul line, leaving Monta in the dust and raising up for a short jumper that splashed through, putting Denver back up by one with 9.3 ticks remaining. Behind a sizzling stanza from Monta Ellis 19 of his game-high 38 points game in the fourth quarter, including a thrilling 4-point play that gave Milwaukee a 111-110 lead with 14.2 seconds left the East's slumping No. 8 seed had a chance to end a four-game skid and notch an impressive win over a Western Conference power.
