With their backs against the wall behind the Utah Jazz 3-1 in their first-round game, the Denver Nuggets leaned on Jamal Murray to bring them back into this series, and boy, he didn’t disappoint. He finished the game with 42 points, eight rebounds and eight assists en route to a 117-107 victory over the Jazz to keep the Nuggets alive.The Jazz remain firmly in control of the series, however, as they lead Denver 3-2, and while Murray’s blast will make headlines, Donovan Mitchell has dropped 30 points to help Jazz lead the major. part of the first three quarters. He can’t score 50 every night, but he’s always proven to be able to find the matches he wanted thanks to the switches in this series. If this continues, we should expect two more duels between him and Murray before the end of this series.
