• Nuggets make it 14 straight on late free throws

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Mar 21, 2013
    Corey Brewer sank three free throws with 2.1 seconds left, and the Denver Nuggets stretched their franchise-best winning streak to 14 games with a 101-100 thriller over the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night. "Then he missed those free throws and I was like, 'OK, we've got a little chance.' He gave us life." The Nuggets, overlooked in the great surge by the Miami Heat, trailed by five as the clock ticked below 10 seconds. Anthony Randolph blocked Damien Wilkins' desperation jumper at the buzzer to secure Denver's 16th straight win at the Pepsi Center and its most unlikely. Brewer sank a 3-pointer with 9.2 seconds left that made it 100-98. He fouled Evan Turner with 7.1 seconds left, and Turner, a 75 percent free throw shooter, missed both of his foul shots, the first one bouncing out and the second one slowly rimming out. "It's crazy. To be honest, I didn't think we had any chance of winning," Brewer said.
