Denver Nuggets pull off miraculous 25 point comeback win over Memphis Grizzlies

#Jokic

The Denver Nuggets stormed back to claim a huge 95-92 win on the road against the Memphis Grizzlies.

With six and a half minutes remaining in the third quarter, the Grizzlies held what looked like an insurmountable 70-45 advantage. Over the final 18 minutes and 30 seconds, the Nuggets came roaring back to life and outscored the Grizzlies 50-22 to claim the win.

The win pushes the Nuggets to 34-15 on the season and only narrowly behind the Western Conference-leading Golden State Warriors. Nikola Jokic once again led the way for the Nuggets as he recorded a team-high 24 points.

Sure Not Now

Memphis, who falls to a 20-31 on the season, jumped out to a 19-point lead at halftime and the home fans looked assured of heading home with the win. Marc Gasol and Mike Conley combined to put up 51 points, 13 rebounds and 14 assists but it all fell apart as the team only managed to score 32 points in the second half, with 15 in the final quarter.

The Grizzlies' dry run in the final stages was summed up by Kyle Anderson's failure to knock down two open jump shots before turning the ball over and ending the contest.

Denver looks to keep riding its win streak when it travels into New Orleans for a meeting with the Pelicans on Thursday. Memphis hopes to jump back into the win column when they take on the Wolves on Thursday.
