(DENVER) — Andre Miller turned back the clock on Saturday night.
He scored a playoff career-high 28 points, including the game-winning layup with 1.3 seconds remaining to lift the Denver Nuggets to a 97-95 win over the Golden State Warriors.
“It could have went either way tonight so we have to be better prepared on Tuesday,” Miller said.
After Miller’s basket, Stephen Curry’s three-pointer missed at the buzzer to give the Nuggets their 24th-straight win at the Pepsi center.
Klay Thompson led Golden State with 22 points, while Andrew Bogut chipped in nine points and 14 rebounds.
The Warriors lost All-Star forward David Lee to a possible right hip flexor strain in the fourth quarter when he banged into Nuggets center Javale McGee. He left the game and was taken for X-rays.
Game 2 is Tuesday night.
