Nuggets beat Thunder 113-107 in overtime to close preseason

The Denver Nuggets ended off the 2021 pre-season by playing the Oklahoma City Thunder, winning 113-107 in overtime. Markus Howard was the leading scorer with 31 points and 9 threes, Will Barton also played great in his limited minutes scoring 14 points and making 2 threes. Neither team had their normal starters which allowed for unique lineups, some of which you may never see again.

1st Quarter

The Thunder won the opening tip and rookie Tre Mann hit a 3 to start the game. Shots were not falling for the Nuggets early on and took two and a half minutes for Will Barton to finally open things off for Denver with a three pointer.
