Video: Nuggets' Andre Miller hits game-winner to beat Warriors

Andre Miller hit a game-winning lay-up to push the Nuggets past the Warriors 97-95 in Game 1 of a first-round Western Conference playoff series.

Miller took advantage of a mismatch, as Golden State forward Draymond Green switched onto him one-on-one on the perimeter as the clock wound down. The veteran point guard milked the clock before attacking the paint to his left, using an up-and-under move to get back to bank in a finish on the right side of the hoop. The basket went through with 1.3 seconds remaining and a Golden State desperation heave was no good as time expired.

Miller finished with a game-high 28 points (on 11-for-16 shooting), five assists and three rebounds in 27 minutes.

The No. 3 seed Nuggets took a 1-0 series lead over the No. 6 seed Warriors, who lost All-Star forward David Lee to a right hip injury during the fourth quarter. Game 2 is set for Denver's Pepsi Center on Tuesday.
