DENVER (AP) — Nikola Jokic finished an assist shy of a triple-double, scoring 22 points and grabbing 13 rebounds to help the Denver Nuggets rally for a 97-95 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Jamal Murray also scored 22 points and Michael Porter Jr. finished with 15 for the Nuggets who trailed most of the game before winning their second straight.
