Barton leads Nuggets to OT win over Pelicans

(TSX / STATS) -- DENVER -- Will Barton missed a chance to give the Denver Nuggets a win five days ago, but he atoned for it with a dominant overtime performance against New Orleans.

Barton scored 11 of his 19 points in the extra time in his return to the lineup and the Nuggets rallied from 18 points down to beat the Pelicans 117-111 on Friday night.

Gary Harris had 21 points, Trey Lyles scored 14 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter and Nikola Jokic had 13 points and 11 rebounds for the Nuggets (16-13) in his first game back after missing seven with a sprained left ankle.
