Nuggets secure 3rd seed with 118-98 win over Suns

DENVER (AP) - The Denver Nuggets secured the third seed in the Western Conference playoffs by routing the Phoenix Suns 118-98 on Wednesday night behind 21 points from Wilson Chandler and 20 from Andre Iguodala.

Their opponent in the first round wasn't determined until the late games on the West Coast wrapped up.

All they knew for sure after the buzzer was that they'll start the playoffs at home - where they've won a franchise-best 23 straight games to finish with the league's best home mark - 38-3 - eclipsing the old record of 36-5 set in 1976-77, their first year in the NBA.

They also won an NBA franchise record 57 games overall, besting the 54-win seasons of 1987-88 and 2008-09.
