A Will Barton buzzer-beater three-point shot ended the quarter with a score of 30-27 to give the Nuggets their first lead of the game.

Tuesday's win was a big one for the Nuggets who entering the contest were 4-6 in their last 10 games and in grave danger of falling out of the playoff picture in the Western Conference.

The Nuggets have been outscored by an average of 8.6 points in their last five games.
