    The win forces a Game 6 between the Nuggets and the Jazz, who lead the series 3-2. Murray carried the offensive load on Tuesday, taking 26 shots (sinking 17 of them) and shooting 50 percent from long range (4-for-8 3PT). He has played big minutes since returning from injury on August 8 and was out there for 41 minutes on Tuesday. The Nuggets will look to push the series to a full seven games with Game 6 coming up on Thursday.
