Few teams toggle between elation and dejection like the Denver Nuggets. The highs — like the one they’re riding now after rattling off four straight wins — are so high Boban Marjanovic would have a difficult time reaching them. The lows — such as the ones they experienced after dropping back-to-back games late last month to the 76ers and Raptors — are low enough to prompt soul searching.

Sometimes Denver will experience both emotions in one game. That was the case Feb. 27 against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Nuggets were in complete control for nearly three quarters. They had a 19-point lead with roughly 16 minutes left to play. Clippers coach Doc Rivers effectively waived the white flag by inserting his bench unit into the game. Then something unexpected happened: the 7-foot-3 Marjanovic led one of the unlikeliest comebacks of the season.
