After a 106-101 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night, the Denver Nuggets control their own destiny with regard to the No. 6 seed in the Western Conference playoff bracket. The only way Denver can fall out of the sixth slot is if they lose to the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Dallas Mavericks win against the Atlanta Hawks, so if the Nuggets take care of business they can avoid OKC in the first round of the 2012 NBA Playoffs.
The Nuggets have won three straight games and 10 of their last 14 thanks to inspired play from Ty Lawson and Kenneth Faried, while the Timberwolves have lost nine of their last 10 contests and will again be without Kevin Love (concussion), Ricky Rubio (knee) and Luke Ridnour (ankle).
