The madness of March isn't limited to the college game.

Nikola Jokic and Luka Doncic put on a show in the final seconds of the Denver Nuggets' 100-99 victory on Thursday at the Pepsi Center.

Doncic appeared to win it for the Dallas Mavericks when he threw down a thunderous and-1 dunk over multiple defenders to take the lead, but he missed the ensuing free throw. The Nuggets called timeout and drew up a play for Jokic, who connected on the winner at the buzzer.

Jokic had just 11 points but found other ways to impact the game with 14 rebounds and eight assists. Paul Millsap led the team with 33 points to go with eight boards.

Doncic missed the critical free throw but still posted 24 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists.
