PHOENIX (AP) — Nikola Jokic had 29 points and 22 rebounds, Jamal Murray hit a difficult 3-pointer to force overtime and the Denver Nuggets outlasted the Phoenix Suns 120-112 in two overtimes Saturday night.
It was the second straight night the teams played extra basketball.
The Nuggets won 130-126 in a single overtime Friday after rallying from a 14-point halftime deficit.
Saturday’s game was even more entertaining.
Murray hit an off-balance 3-pointer with Deandre Ayton in his face as time expired in regulation.
Phoenix’s Jae Crowder responded with a 3-pointer with 0.7 seconds left in the first overtime.
The Suns played without All-Star guard Devin Booker for the first time this season, averaging a team-high 22.9 points, he hurt his left hamstring Friday.
