Thursday night’s game between the Denver Nuggets and Oklahoma City Thunder was one of the most entertaining games in the NBA this season.
The Thunder trailed by 17 points early in the fourth quarter, and made a furious comeback, led by Paul George and Russell Westbrook. The two stars combined for 24 points in the game’s final six minutes (14 for George, 10 for Westbrook), and this three from George tied the game with 1.4 seconds left.
But the Nuggets responded on the ensuing play, with Gary Harris draining this wide-open three to give Denver a thrilling 127-124 win:
It was a very fitting finish for such a wild game, which featured a few incredible individual performances.
George finished with 43 points (on an incredible 19-of-26 shooting from the field), five rebounds, and five assists.
Westbrook had 20 points, 21 assists(!), and nine rebounds.
And Denver star 22-year-old big man Nikola Jokic had 29 points, 14 rebounds, and 13 assists.
