With just under three minutes remaining in yesterday’s game against the Pacers, the Nuggets trailed by three. They had just allowed a 7-0 Indiana run which reversed the lead Denver had held earlier in the quarter, and appeared to be on the verge of yet another fourth quarter collapse.
That’s when Andre Miller decided to take over the game.
In just a minute forty-four seconds, he commandeered a 10-point run, scoring eight points with one assist and one very hard-fought rebound. Essentially, he almost single-handedly delivered this victory for the Nuggets. It is important to note, though, that JaVale McGee also deserves a fair amount of credit for setting two screens that set up Miller’s shots, and running the floor for an easy cherry-picked dunk.
