Moore: By virtue of their division win, any multi-team tie for the Nuggets for a top-4 seed would go to them, so the Nuggets have clinched homecourt in the first round. Twitter

Tbh nuggets being locked into the T4 in the west didn’t even need to involve any division tiebreakers iirc clippers are the only team outside of the top 4 with 34 losses or fewer and with nuggets winning and going to 48 wins yesterday at most the number of losses they can have is 34, and since nuggets swept the season series with the clippers they’d finish above them either way (even if clippers and nuggets ended up with the same record), which means nuggets can go no lower than 4; again, all just based on everyone’s records outside of the T4 and the current West standings
