LOS ANGELES (AP) — Paul George scored 28 points, James Harden added 20 and the Los Angeles Clippers hung on to beat the Denver Nuggets 102-100.

The Clippers snapped a five-game skid at home despite the absence of Kawhi Leonard, who sat out with a sore right knee.

Nikola Jokic led Denver with 36 points, 17 rebounds and 10 assists for his 24th triple-double of the season. But he missed a potential game-winning 3-point attempt as time expired. Aaron Gordon added 18 points for the Nuggets.

The Clippers' bench outscored Denver's reserves, 34-9.
