DENVER (AP) Andre Iguodala made a free throw with 0.4 seconds remaining after forcing a turnover to deny a last-second shot by Indiana, and the Denver Nuggets beat the Pacers 102-101 Monday night.

Iguodala finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, and had the defensive play of the game when he stole the ball from Paul George as the Pacers' guard maneuvered for a last-second shot.

Iguoadala signaled for time out with 0.5 seconds remaining. On the inbounds, Andre Miller lobbed a pass toward the basket that Iguodala and George both went after with George making contact and getting called for the foul.

Iguoadala, who had missed four consecutive free throws earlier in the fourth quarter, cooly sank the tiebreaker and missed the second on purpose and the buzzer sounded as the ball rattled off the backboard.
