In an NBA in-season tournament game on Tuesday night, the host Denver Nuggets defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 111-108 behind the stats of 32 points, 16 rebounds, and 9 assists from Nikola Jokic and 20 points from Aaron Gordon.

Denver is 2-0 in the in-season tournament behind the 18 points scored by Reggie Jackson and the 10 points apiece from Michael Porter Jr. and Christian Braun.

Los Angeles, which has lost six straight games and both of its in-season tournament games, is led by Paul George, who scored 35 points, followed in double figures by James Harden (21) and Kawhi Leonard (15). Norman Powell and Ivica Zubac both had 14 points and 13 rebounds respectively.

Since Harden was acquired from Philadelphia towards the end of last month, the Clippers have a record of 0-5 in his games played.

Los Angeles was up 102-98 with 3:24 remaining, but the Nuggets responded with seven straight points to take a three-point lead with 1:37 remaining.

The score was 109-104 after George made two free throws with 50 seconds remaining, but Jackson scored a layup and Jokic found Gordon for a dunk.

Leonard made two free throws with fifteen seconds remaining, stole the ball, and George made a layup to make the score 109-108. Denver sealed the game with two free throws from Jokic and a 3-pointer missed by George.

After P.J. Tucker’s 3-pointer to start the fourth quarter gave Los Angeles an 87-84 lead, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope’s two free throws with 8:30 left gave the Nuggets a point.

Westbrook drove the baseline and George drained a 14-footer to make it 93-89. With 4:45 remaining, Jokic made a short turnaround in the lane to pull the Clippers within three points after the team scored four straight points to go ahead 99-92. Porter then responded with a jumper.

Gordon’s putback dunk made it 99-98 after Los Angeles missed on the other end with 3:47 remaining.

At the half, the Nuggets led 60–52, but in the third, the Clippers mounted a comeback. With five seconds remaining, Harden made it 84-81 after making two free throws to give Los Angeles the lead.

Gordon tied the score going into the fourth quarter with a buzzer-beater from almost halfcourt.
