Denver is a troubling matchup for Oklahoma City — when they have met this season, the Thunder have led for 12 minutes of game time, the Nuggets for 85. If they meet in the playoffs, that should worry Thunder fans.
Tuesday night it was no blowout, OKC even led late, but down the stretch Denver made the plays and picked up the 121-112 win, with Nikola Jokic scoring 36 points, grabbing 10 rebounds and dishing out nine assists.
However, in the loss, Paul George had some ridiculous highlights. Like the halfcourt buzzer beater.
Then there was one very angry dunk.
George is right in the mix for MVP and he is showing out even in games the Thunder do not.
