Gary Harris Buzzer-Beater Downs OKC, Ruins Brilliant Game-Tying Paul George Three

Gary Harris’s buzzer-beating three-pointer earned Denver a 127-124 win and fouled a would-be legend-making three hit seconds earlier by Paul George to draw Oklahoma City even with the Nuggets.

Denver held a mighty lead headed into the fourth quarter, only to watch the Thunder claw back and finally tie the game on George’s step-back three with less than two seconds remaining. But the day would be Harris’s—and the Nuggets’—with his desperation heave as the buzzer sounded. After the game, a fan got in Russell Westbrook’s face:

A fun time for everyone! Except the Thunder and their fans, at least.
