Harris has 27 and Nuggets edge Blazers 113-112 - Dec 1, 2018

Gary Harris
With some three minutes left in a tight game against the Portland Trail Blazers, Paul Millsap (6'8''-F-85, college: Louisiana Tech) gathered the Denver Nuggets for a pep talk. Nuggets coach Michael Malone set the scene, explaining that Millsap "went out and grabbed the guys in the huddle and said 'We've talked about being a playoff team but if we're really going to be a playoff team this is one we need to get.'" The Nuggets, who had led by as many as 17 in the game, went on to withstand a frenzied final few minutes to edge the Blazers 113-112 on Friday night. It was Denver's fifth straight win. Millsap finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds while Gary Harris (6'4''-G-94, college: Michigan St.), who missed Denver's last two games with a sore left ankle, had 27 points - including a crucial 3-pointer in the final minute. But Harris also pointed to the words the normally reserved Millsap said to the team in the huddle as the difference in the game. "He said if we're gonna be a playoff team it's time to show everybody. For him to open his mouth like that it shocked a lot of people," Harris said. "That was big and it got us over the hump. He's our vet. He's our leader." C.J. McCollum (6'4''-G-91, college: Lehigh) had 33 points, but missed a jumper at the final buzzer as the Blazers came up just short. Jusuf Nurkic (7'0''-C-94) added 17 points and 11 rebounds for Portland, which has lost four of its last five games. The Blazers started to chip away at Denver's lead late in the third quarter. C.J. McCollum's jumper got Portland within 98-97 with 6:04 left but Monte Morris (6'3''-PG-95, college: Iowa St.) answered with a 3-pointer for the Nuggets and the Blazers couldn't get any closer until Nurkic's basket with 1:30 left counted on a goaltending call to close the gap to 108-106. C.J. McCollum added step-back jumper to tie it at 108 with less than a minute left. Jamal Murray (6'6''-F/G-97, college: Kentucky) made a pair of free throws for Denver before C.J. McCollum came through again with a layup to re-tie it with 37.1 seconds left - but Harris nailed a corner 3-pointer to put the Nuggets in front 113-110. C.J. McCollum dunked on the other end and Murray was called out of bounds after the inbound to give Portland back the ball. After a review, the call was overturned. The game clock was re-set to 6.9 seconds and Murray was again called out of bounds on the inbound, but C.J. McCollum's jumper at the buzzer was off to end it. "I saw CJ and he got a good look, it just didn't fall," Damian Lillard said about the final play. "A lot of things we could have done to not be in that position, but we had our shot. It just didn't fall." It was the first of a five-game road trip for the Nuggets, who were coming off of a 117-85 victory at home over the L.A. Lakers. Harris hit a 3-pointer that capped a 14-2 run that put the Nuggets in front 28-17 late in the first quarter. Denver led by as many as 14 points in the opening period. Meyers Leonard had an emphatic dunk over Mason Plumlee (6'11''-F-90, college: Duke) as Portland struggled to close the gap. C.J. McCollum got the Blazers within single digits with a layup that made it 53-45, but Harris' layup and free throw extended Denver's lead again. Millsap had 16 first-half points and the Nuggets went into the break with a 68-53 lead. Portland was hurt by 10 turnovers. The Trail Blazers snapped a three-game losing streak with a 115-112 victory over Orlando on Wednesday. Lillard had 41 points in the game, including a franchise-record 10 3-pointers. But against the Nuggets he was cold at the start with just five first-half points. He finished with 15.

Paul George
George scores 33 to help Thunder top Clippers 110-104 - 6 hours ago
Paul George (6'9''-G/F-90, college: Fresno St.) rendered the Los Angeles Clippers' traps and double-teams useless. Oklahoma City's forward shredded the Clippers for 33 points, seven rebounds and six assists in a 110-104 victory on Saturday night. "I'm fine being trapped," George said. "That's where we're going to need our guys the most - for them to make plays out of it. Honestly, I think that's the easiest way for me to get myself going because I make those plays early. And we burn them,...   [read more]

The rally snapped Chicago's three-game skid and ended San Antonio's four-game winning streak. LaMarcus Aldridge (6'11''-F/C-85, college: Texas) had 29 points and 12 rebounds for San Antonio, which dominated the first half. DeMar DeRozan (6'7''-F/...   [read more]
