The Denver Nuggets produced a massive comeback to get past the Memphis Grizzlies in the NBA on Monday.

Denver did not take control against the Grizzlies until there was less than a minute left in the fourth quarter. They trailed by as many as 25, but a late-game surge helped the Nuggets claim a 95-92 victory.

Nikola Jokic has continued to be Denver's go-to scorer, leading the way with 24 points. The elite playmaker only tallied three assists.

Mike Conley led all scorers with 28 points on 11-of-19 shooting. Marc Gasol totalled 14 points in the first quarter and finished with 23.

The Grizzlies' stars came to play, but the team blew their biggest lead in franchise history in the loss.

Memphis have lost nine of their last 10 games while the Nuggets extended their winning streak to three.
