Jamal Murray shot 5-for-16 from the field in Friday's Game 3 loss, scoring 12 points with five rebounds, six assists, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers.
It looked like the shorthanded Nets would be the most uninspiring team in action on Friday but that honor will go to the Nuggets, who showed up in name only as Utah rolled to a 20-point lead early and never looked back, outscoring the Nuggets in every quarter despite ample garbage time. Without Murray's Game 1 heroics, the Nuggets would be down 3-0 in this series. They'll need him to be better than this to tie it at two apiece on Sunday.
