OKLAHOMA CITY — The Denver Nuggets’ Feb. 1 game against the Oklahoma City Thunder had everything.

There was star power; Nikola Jokic posted a monster 29-point, 13-rebound, 14-assist stat line, while Thunder forward Paul George went for 43 points on 26 shots. There were viral moments; Jamal Murray’s crossover, which caused Steven Adams to crumple to the ground in a heap, spawned a thousand blog posts. There was even a buzzer beater; Gary Harris drilled a three over Russell Westbrook as time expired.
