DENVER, Colo. -

Andre Miller scored a playoff career-high 28 points and sank a nifty layup with 1.3 seconds left that lifted the Denver Nuggets to a 97-95 win over the Golden State Warriors on Saturday.
    
Miller drove left past rookie Draymond Green, did an up-and-under between two defenders under the basket and banked the ball off the glass with his right hand.
    
The Warriors inbounded the ball and Stephen Curry's desperation 3-pointer wasn't anywhere close as the horn sounded and the Nuggets celebrated their 24th straight win at the Pepsi Center.
    
Miller scored 18 in the frenetic fourth quarter.
    
Game 2 is Tuesday night at the Pepsi Center, where the Nuggets posted an NBA-best 38-3 home record during the season.
