NBA: Denver 119, Chicago 118 (OT)

March 18, 2013 at 11:17 PM

CHICAGO, March 18 (UPI) -- Andre Iguodala put Denver ahead with a 3-pointer in overtime and the Nuggets benefited from a controversial call to complete a 119-118 victory over Chicago.

Iguodala's trey with 7.1 seconds remaining in the extra frame wiped out a 118-116 Bulls lead and the Nuggets hung on for their 12th straight win when Joakim Noah was called for offensive goaltending with 1.7 seconds left.

On the play, Marco Belinelli launched a jumper that appeared to be short of the rim and Noah deflected it through the hoop for an apparent game-winner.

The officials, however, overruled the basket after they determined via a video review that Noah touched the ball as it was in the cylinder.

Wilson Chandler finished with 35 points for the Nuggets.

Nate Robinson led Chicago with 34.
