Only the second-longest winning streak in NBA history can overshadow what the Denver Nuggets are doing.
Denver won't go down easy, and its streak has now reached 12 wins in a row after a 119-118 overtime victory at the Chicago Bulls on Monday.
Controversy floated around the basket on the game's final pivotal play. With seconds remaining, Marco Belinelli faded away and missed short when Joakim Noah tipped the ball through the basket.
But officials went to review with 1.7 seconds remaining and called the play offensive goaltending.
The call was close, and it appears at an even closer replay that Noah touched the ball when it was over the cylinder, a goaltend.
The problem for Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, who threw out some expletives toward the refs, was that non-calls are not reviewable in that situation.
Either way, the correct outcome was established.
Andre Iguodala hit a three-pointer with seven seconds remaining to give Denver its lead prior to the controversial call by officials.
These are the type of breaks that go to teams on magical runs.
The Nuggets have been tough, throwing a new name at opponents each night. On Monday, it was Wilson Chandler's 35 points and nine rebounds off the bench.
Despite Chicago's loss, Noah looked like an MVP with his effort. He made multiple plays at the basket, both offensively and defensively, and finished with 14 points, seven blocks, 12 rebounds and six assists (plus an uncounted one rebound, two points and a win).
