DENVER, March 2 (UPI) -- Ty Lawson's jump shot with two-tenths of a second remaining Friday gave Denver a dramatic 105-103 victory over Oklahoma City.

Denver took a 10-point lead into the final period, but the Thunder went on a nine-point run early in the stanza to get back in the game and eventually went in front by three.

The Nuggets regained a two-point advantage with 22 seconds left on a jumper from Wilson Chandler, but Denver moved back into a tie on Kevin Durant's field goal with 17 seconds remaining.

Denver let the clock run down before Lawson produced the last of his 11 points to win it.

Oklahoma City had won its previous three games while Denver ran its winning streak to four. The Nuggets are 25-3 at home this season, tops in the Western Conference.

Chandler scored 35 points, hitting six 3-pointers and going 13-of-19 from the field. Andre Miller and Corey Brewer added 14 each.

Russell Westbrook had 38 points for the Thunder while Durant scored 25 and grabbed 14 rebounds.
