The Denver Nuggets recently had a 15-game winning streak. But nobody paid too much attention since the Miami Heat were in the midst of a 27-game spurt.

It would figure. For a team with the NBA’s fourth-best record, the Nuggets sure do fly under the radar.

But leave it to point guard Ty Lawson to let it be known how good they are.

Lawson vows the Nuggets (50-24) “can get to the NBA Finals" and win. Never mind if their Finals foe could be the mighty Heat.

“I think so,’’ Lawson said when asked if the Nuggets could beat the Heat for the title. “They beat us twice early in the year when we weren’t really in sync. We were still trying to find ourselves. So I feel like if we play them now it would be a better game and we could actually beat them.’’

Denver did give the Heat two good games in November, but lost 119-116 at Miami and 98-93 at home. So what makes Lawson think the Nuggets could turn the tide if the teams meet in the Finals?

“Teamwork, and we could throw a lot of people at LeBron (James) and (Dwyane Wade), and not just one person,’’ Lawson said. “We can throw (Andre) Iguodala and (Danilo Gallinari) and Corey Brewer and Wilson (Chandler). You can throw so many people at (them). And then we have so many weapons.’’

Lawson is getting ahead of himself considering many would deem it a successful season if the Nuggets simply win one playoff series. They made the postseason the previous nine years, but only got past the first round once.

But Lawson is at least right about the Nuggets’ teamwork and all the weapons they have. Denver is the deepest team in the NBA, with nine players averaging 8.3 or more points, including six between 11.7 and 16.7.
