OKLAHOMA CITY — For the third time in a week, the Denver Nuggets held onto a lead in the second half. They were up 10 in Philadelphia on Monday and eight in Toronto on Tuesday, but in both games they wound up blowing it.

On Friday, the Nuggets once again had a comfortable cushion after halftime. They were cruising along with a 15-point lead over the Thunder in the third quarter. Oklahoma City came charging back in the fourth. This time, Denver did just enough to hang on to win 126-125 in overtime.
