Game Story

DENVER (Ticker) -- The Portland Trail Blazers' 12-game winning streak ended in a most unlikely fashion.

Tim Hardaway drained a 3-pointer with 1.5 seconds left in regulation and Donnell Harvey, one of the NBA's worst free-throw shooters, made two from the line with 6.1 seconds to go in overtime as the Denver Nuggets stunned the Trail Blazers, 109-106.

Hardaway was scoreless for the game's first 47 minutes but buried a 3-pointer with 23 seconds to go. His biggest basket, however, came on Denver's final possession of regulation as he calmly dribbled to the right wing and sank the tying 3-pointer.

"I just went down and hit the jumper," Hardaway said. "It was a great pick by (Juwan) Howard, he was looking at me the whole way and made for a wide-open shot."

In overtime, the Nuggets took their first lead of the night on a two free throws by Juwan Howard. But Denver needed two free throws from Harvey -- a career 41.7 percent shooter from the line -- to seal the win.

"The offense and defense began unfolding," Nuggets interim coach Mike Evans said. "Guys were believing and sacrificing for one another, executing and making the plays. You could see it all unfold when Tim hit that big step back, that was the start of it."

Even with the unlikely free throws, the Nuggets still had to withstand a wide-open 3-pointer by Damon Stoudamire at the final buzzer.

"I can't begin to explain this game," Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks said. "This game was won. We had this game won and have to walk out of here with heavy hearts. It's a prime example of you keep on playing and something can happen. We'll be a better team because of this."

Portland seemed well on its way to extending the second-longest winning streak in franchise history, holding a 91-84 lead with 31 seconds left. But George McCloud buried a jumper for the Nuggets six seconds later.

Rick Brunson made a free throw for Portland, but Hardaway drained his first 3-pointer to get Denver within 92-89 with 23 seconds remaining. Pippen made two free throws to push the lead to five less than a second later, but McCloud made another jumper.

Pippen went 1-of-2 from the line with eight seconds left and Hardaway came through with the tying basket.

In overtime, Pippen matched two free throws by Howard, but Voshon Lenard sank a 3-pointer from the left corner and Hardaway swished a fadeaway jumper.

Portland rallied as Pippen scored four straight points to knot the contest at 104-104 with 61 seconds to go. The Blazers missed a chance to take the lead when Bonzi Wells' dunk did not go down and Lenard converted two free throws with 13 seconds left.

Wells missed a jumper with eight seconds to go and Harvey was fouled after grabbing the rebound. Just 4-of-10 from the free-throw line in the game, Harvey sank both attempts. The points proved huge when Anderson sank a jumper with two seconds remaining.

Hardaway was fouled on the inbounds pass and made 1-of-2 from the line to push the lead to 109-106. But Portland executed perfectly on the inbounds pass and Stoudamire was off the mark from about 32 feet.

Pippen had 12 points and Stoudamire seven in the opening quarter as Portland led 36-22. The lead was 11 at the half as Wells had 14 and Pippen and Rasheed Wallace 12 apiece.

"We had this game under control, they hit some big shots down the stretch to go into overtime," Pippen said. "We had a little letdown from the fatigue standpoint. Half the fans left, we just screwed up and gave them the game."

The Trail Blazers took their largest lead, 64-46, with 8:53 left in the third quarter, but Denver closed the period with a 16-7 burst and was within 74-66 entering the final quarter.
