No matter how this game ends up for the Nuggets they have to ecstatic about their future with Nikola Jokic. He has risen to the occasion on the biggest stage the regular season can offer. He has 30 points and has played within himself throughout the night. He has been a calming presence for the rest of the young group.

A fourth-quarter comeback to beat the visiting Portland Trail Blazers kept the Denver Nuggets in position to secure their first playoff berth since 2013 by beating the Minnesota Timberwolves in Wednesday's season finale. Behind a triple-double (15 points, 20 rebounds, 11 assists) from Nikola Jokic, the Nuggets outscored the Blazers 22-13 in a poor-shooting fourth quarter to win it 88-82. Portland will wrap up the season by hosting the Utah Jazz Wednesday with the third seed in the West on the line.
