The Denver Nuggets got a little playoff help on Wednesday night. The Phoenix Suns beat the Utah Jazz in the final regular season game of the year. Utah finished the season tied for fourth with the Nuggets. However, the Nuggets win the tie-breaker and get the fourth seed in the NBA playoffs and home court in the first round. Had Utah beaten Phoenix, the Nuggets would have dropped to the fifth seed and not received home court advantage in the first round.
The Nuggets open the playoffs Saturday night at home against Utah. Game two is Monday night in Denver.
