Nuggets guard Ty Lawson hit a last-second game-winner over Thabo Sefolosha to defeat the Thunder 105-103 at Denver’s Pepsi Center on Friday night.

With less than 10 seconds remaining and the score tied at 103-103, Lawson milked the clock to the end before attempting a pull-up jumper with two ticks remaining. The shot went cleanly through with 0.2 seconds to go and the Thunder could not convert on the other end. Lawson backpedaled after he let it fly and then appeared to celebrate his winner with a “Bernie Lean,” a dance that recalls the 1980s movie Weekend at Bernie’s.

Lawson finished with 11 points (on 5-for-14 shooting), seven assists, three rebounds and two steals in 36 minutes. Nuggets wing Wilson Chandler finished with a team-high 35 points.

Russell Westbrook scored a game-high 38 points for the Thunder, and Kevin Durant added 25 points and 14 rebounds.

Denver improved to 38-22 on the season; Oklahoma City dropped to 42-16.
