The Denver Nuggets held on for a gritty home victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night. Holding a big lead for most of the night, they had to fend off a final surge before sealing a 110-100 victory.
Wilson Chandler was the star player on this night for the Nuggets, especially in the 4th quarter. In 35 minutes of action, he dropped 24 points including this decisive reverse layup in the final minutes of the game.
On the night the Nuggets had six players in double digits. J.J. Hickson posted a double double with 19 points and 10 rebounds, as did Ty Lawson with 18 points and 13 assists. Entering the night Denver was in 10th place in the Western Conference. That makes a game like this a must-win, especially at home. Thanks to Chandler and others, they handled their business.
