Wilson Chandler scored seven of his 24 points in the final 1:52 and the Denver Nuggets held on to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 110-100 on Wednesday night.
Ty Lawson had 18 points and 13 assists and Randy Foye scored 20 points for the Nuggets, who avoided another embarrassing home loss to a sub-.500 team.
Denver has played well against good teams and struggled against losing clubs this year, especially at home. The Nuggets, who were 38-3 at Pepsi Center last season, watched Utah, Philadelphia, Cleveland and Charlotte leave Denver with unlikely victories.
Larry Sanders had 25 points and 15 rebounds for short-handed Milwaukee, and Khris Middleton also scored 25.
