Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Randy Foye fixed a broken play at the buzzer, draining a miracle 3-pointer to send the Denver Nuggets over the Los Angeles Clippers 116-115 in a thriller at Pepsi Center.

Matt Barnes provided the 22nd lead change in a back-and-forth affair on an unlikely 3-pointer with 6.2 seconds remaining, leaving just enough time for the Nuggets to draw up the game-winner.

J.J. Hickson held the ball near the top of the key for slow-developing pick- and-roll, and Foye rushed over to take the ball away from the big man. With Blake Griffin in his face, Foye faded away from 28 feet and released it just before the buzzer, sliding on his back as the ball dropped through the net.

The Nuggets, who have relied heavily on their bench all season, saw all five of their starters score in double figures. Kenneth Faried finished with a career-high 28 points with 11 rebounds and Ty Lawson scored 27 in the win.

Griffin poured in 36 points to lead the Clippers, who got 19 points from both DeAndre Jordan and Jamal Crawford.
