DENVER (AP) — Gary Harris had just enough time to catch the ball and shoot — and his aim was true.
Harris made the winning 3-pointer at the buzzer and finished with 25 points to lift the Denver Nuggets to a 127-124 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night.
Nikola Jokic added his third triple-double of the season with 29 points, 13 rebounds and 14 assists, including the inbounds pass to Harris with 1.4 seconds remaining. Harris grabbed the ball and put it up for the win before running off the court, his hand held high in celebration.
“Joker threw a helluva pass and I was able to get off a good look,” said Harris, who made the shot as Russell Westbrook ran at him with a hand in his face. “It felt good. I knew it was going in.”
