Game Rewind: Pacers 100, Nuggets 102

The Pacers had a chance at a second straight dramatic victory and to clinch a playoff berth in storybook fashion on Monday night.

Both defenders went with ballhandler Jamal Murray, so he dished to Millsap, who beat a too-late-to-recover Turner to the rim for the go-ahead basket with seven seconds left.

Indiana plays in Portland on Monday, at the Clippers on Tuesday, and visits defending champion Golden State on Thursday.

"I think our players are poised and I think they are confident because we have been in so many of those games and we have come out on the winning end...Tonight, down the stretch, I thought our defense was fantastic in the second half."

Guard Tyreke Evans returned to action on Saturday after missing the last three games due to a combination of an upper respiratory infection and personal reasons.

After a four-game road trip, the Pacers will return home to host Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Sunday, March 24 at 5:00 PM ET.
