The Nuggets have gone through their fair share of injuries on the year, and they're coming off of their most disappointing game of the season in Saturday's loss to Memphis - one that broke the Grizzlies' 19-game losing streak.

The New York Knicks have been in a major slump as they've lost 17 of their last 20 games but they will actually be aiming for a third straight win after blowing past the Bulls in a 110-92 home win on Monday.

In a battle of two teams fighting for playoff position and featuring 22 lead changes, the Heat survived a double overtime back-and-forth battle by setting a franchise-record for points in a 149-141 victory at AmericanAirlines Arena. Meanwhile, the Heat are 5-0 ATS in their last five home games, 7-2-2 ATS in their last 11 games following a win and 11-3-2 ATS in their last 16 games overall. This one had even more fireworks, with the Heat missing shots at the end of regulation and the first overtime before finding a way in the second OT. James Johnson led the team with 31 points, 11 rebounds and six assists, Kelly Olynyk added 30 points, Wayne Ellington scored 23 points while Goran Dragic chipped in with 20 points and eight assists.

It's also the most points scored by any team this season. Jokic's tip-in with 10 seconds to play tied the score at 118, setting the stage for the Heat to try and win the game on the final shot.

Heat: It was the highest-scoring first four quarters of an overtime game in Heat history. NY is 30 with 7.9 threes per game while ranking tied for 27 in three point shooting as they hit 35 percent of their attempts from beyond the arc.

Orioles, right-hander Alex Cobb agree to four-year deal
The deal with Cobb would be the largest financial commitment the Orioles have given a free-agent starting pitcher. In six Major League Baseball seasons, all with the Rays, Cobb has a 3.50 ERA with a 2.79 K/BB ratio.

The Denver starters managed only 13 assists for the game, paced by Jamal Murray's 5. Dwyane Wade missed his fourth straight game with a hamstring injury while Hassan Whiteside sat out his fifth straight with a hip injury.

Johnson scored 31 points along with 11 rebounds, while Olynyk poured in 30 points off the bench on an efficient 11-of-16 shooting.

Nikola Jokic led the Nuggets offense with 34 points and 15 rebounds.

The Miami Heat has played an NBA-best 48 clutch games this season. Denver dropped two games back of the eight seed in the Western Conference with the loss while Miami moved into the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference.

Both teams are in desperate need of a win, being stuck in the middle of the playoff race with no seeding guaranteed yet. On a night Miami eclipsed its previous high for points (141) by a wide margin, the NBA's stat tracking system crashed in overtime and no official boxscore had been released as of midnight. The Heat improved to 21-13 on their home court. The teams have combined to go under the total in seven of their last nine meetings: look for that to continue here as the Knicks are up and down offensively and the Heat might be a little worn down after their track meet with the Nuggets. Miami has seen the under go 5-1 in their last 6 vs. a team with a losing straight up record and 13-4 in their last 17 against the Atlantic Division.
