Denver Nuggets guard Gary Harris dropped a winning three-pointer at the buzzer, to raise the Nuggets to a thrilling 127-124 triumph over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night.

Nikola Jokic beat a very long 5-second inbound count, to nail an excellent cross-court pass to Harris, with Russell Westbrook a hair too late in closing out.

Joker threw a helluva pass and I was able to get off a good look. It felt good. I knew it was going in.

Harris would net five threes in the game, finishing with 25 points. Jokic had a big game, dominating Oklahoma City's frontline, with his third triple-double of the season. He had 29 points, 13 rebounds, and 14 assists.

Paul George almost led the Thunder back from their double-digit deficit, scoring 14 of his 43 points in the final stanza. Russell Westbrook had another near triple-double with 20 points, 21 assists, and nine rebounds.
