Millsap's floater leads Nuggets to 102-100 win over Pacers

Paul Millsap hit a left-handed layup with 7 seconds remaining after Jokic was ejected late in the fourth quarter for arguing and the Nuggets moved to the verge of their first playoff spot since 2012-13 with a 102-100 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night.

Millsap finished with 15 points — nine in the fourth quarter — and 13 rebounds for Denver, which overcame an 18-point, first-half deficit.

The magic number for earning their fourth straight playoff spot stays at one for a Pacers team that hasn’t won in Denver since Nov. 27, 2007.
