Watch: Nikola Jokic sinks Mavericks with buzzer-beater
Nikola Jokic was quiet for much of the Denver Nuggets’ game against the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday night, but he got it going when it mattered most.
After failing to make a field goal in the first three quarters, Jokic came on strong in the fourth quarter. He made four buckets over the final 6:29, including this one at the buzzer to win the game:

Denver won 100-99 to improve to 45-22. The shot by Jokic also helped erase some bad feelings from a dunk by Luka Doncic on the previous possession that gave Dallas the lead.
Jokic had 11 points, 14 rebounds and 8 assists in the game.
