Nuggets lose to Minnesota in overtime, eliminated from National Basketball Association playoff contention

Jeff Teague drove the basket in the first quarter

It took overtime, but the Timberwolves are back in the National Basketball Association playoffs after defeating Denver 112-106 at Target Center. The final score was 112-106.

The Nuggets are capable of getting the win if they execute these keys to the game. However, the Wolves were able to remain strong offensively and close out the game as they ended the longest drought for an National Basketball Association team not to make the playoffs. The Rockets won all four regular season meetings between the two teams.

Jokic had 35 points to lead all scorers - 17 coming in the third quarter alone - on 14-25 shooting.

Jimmy Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns have helped the Minnesota Timberwolves to a playoff spot this year. But, using his quick hands and instincts, Gibson was able to not only knock the ball away, but also corral it and call a timeout, setting up a game-winning attempt for Minnesota with 1.6 seconds left. Nikola Jokic started the run with a three, then Jamal Murray scored seven straight to tie it and force overtime.

Minnesota is in the playoffs and is set to face the Houston Rockets in the first round of the National Basketball Association playoffs.

And the game lived up to its billing.
