Nuggets’ Twitter account could not get a hold of itself after Gary Harris’ game-winner
Thursday night basketball always seems to follow along with TNT’s knack for drama. Each week a pair of the NBA’s premiere games are featured along with some entertainment and comedy from the Inside the NBA crew.
It’s a known fact that Denver’s high altitude is a problem for players who aren’t accustomed to running in the thin air, so its natural for the Nuggets to play a fast-paced game to gain an advantage.
Coming to the close of a two-game road trip just prior to a back-to-back game tomorrow, the Thunder seemed a bit lethargic and trailed the Nuggets late into the fourth quarter.
Mainly due to the heroics of Paul George, who ended the game with 43 points, the team managed to fight back from a 72-57 halftime score that led to the final seconds before the winner was determined.
The last two minutes consisted of a series of offensive fouls on both teams, great defensive plays, highlights, and heart-pumping clutch 3-point buckets that would easily have any fan on his feet.
In the final second of the game on an inbound catch, Gary Harris launched a 3-pointer over Russell Westbrook hoping to neutralize the one that George had just sunk, and to win the game for the Nuggets.
As the buzzer sounded the shot fell through, and Harris ran out of the arena holding up three fingers which signaled their victory.
The ending of the game was full of adrenaline that the Nuggets’ social media guys could hardly find words to describe what had just transpired before their eyes.
So instead of racking their brains trying to find the words to describe the tension, hair-pulling moments and the elation, they tweeted out how it felt in perfectly.
