Nikola Jokic says he knew 3 that stunned Warriors was going in

SAN FRANCISCO -- Denver Nuggets forward Aaron Gordon inbounded the ball to center Nikola Jokic with 3.6 seconds left in the fourth quarter against the Golden State Warriors and the score tied.

Jokic took three dribbles down the right side of the court and then launched a 39-foot 3-pointer over the head of Warriors center Kevon Looney.

From the vantage point of the Nuggets bench, it looked dead on.

"As it left his hands, all the coaches in the back were saying, 'That's on line. That's going in,'" Nuggets coach Michael Malone said.
