DENVER (AP) - Corey Brewer sank three free throws with 2.1 seconds left and the Denver Nuggets stretched their franchise-best winning streak to 14 games with a 101-100 thriller over the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night.

Anthony Randolph blocked Damien Wilkins' desperation jumper at the buzzer to secure Denver's 16th straight win at the Pepsi Center - and its most unlikely.

Brewer finished with 29 points.

Wilkins had 24 points and Jrue Holliday had 18 points and 15 assists for the Sixers.

Brewer scored the Nuggets' last six points, including a 3-pointer with 9.2 seconds left that pulled Denver within 100-98.

Brewer fouled Evan Turner with 7.1 seconds left and he missed both free throws. After a timeout, Anthony Miller inbounded to Danilo Gallinari, who passed to Brewer, who was knocked down on his 3-point try by Wilkins.
