LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Nikola Jokic made the tiebreaking basket with 27 seconds left and the Denver Nuggets advanced to the second round of the NBA playoffs by the slimmest of margins.
Denver beating the Utah Jazz 80-78 in Game 7 on Tuesday night when Mike Conley’s 3-pointer spun out at the buzzer.
That last sequence. Harris recovery, deflection. And for some reason #Nuggets didn’t pull the ball out and were almost sent home by Conley. Damn. #Nuggets play two worst games of year in this series and rally. Credit to them. #Clippers up next on Thursday #Denver7 pic.twitter.com/GPJTa2X1pL— Troy Renck (@TroyRenck) September 2, 2020
The Nuggets became the 12th team in NBA history to overcome a 3-1 deficit to win a series, but only after they blew a 19-point lead in this game.
They advanced to face the Los Angeles Clippers in the Western Conference semifinals.
