DENVER, Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Andre Iguodala's free throw with 0.5 seconds remaining following a controversial foul call boosted Denver to a 102-101 win over Indiana Monday.

The Pacers went on a 13-0 run late in the fourth quarter to forge a 99-99 tie and knotted the contest again at 101-101 when David West corralled an offensive rebound and followed with a layup with 38 seconds left.

Then on the game's final play, Denver's Andre Miller lobbed a pass toward the rim for Iguodala, who drew a foul from Paul George that incensed the Pacers.

He sank the first free throw then purposely missed the second, forcing the clock to expire for the victory -- the Nuggets' 10th in 12 games.

Iguodala ended with 13 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, Danilo Gallinari pumped in 27 points and Ty Lawson contributed 18 points, seven assists and five steals in the win.

George led Indiana with 23 points and 10 rebounds and Lance Stephenson added 20 and eight for the Pacers.
