DENVER — With a win in their regular-season finale, the Denver Nuggets enter the playoffs as the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference.

Denver beat the Memphis Grizzlies 126-111 in the final game of the regular season Sunday.

The Nuggets’ 57-25 record is tied with the Oklahoma City Thunder, with OKC taking the tiebreaker based on head-to-head matchups. The Nuggets have lost three straight to the Thunder after winning a game against them back in October.

Denver’s first-round playoff opponent is still to be decided. The Nuggets will play the winner of the play-in game between the Los Angeles Lakers and New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night.
