• Jamal Murray
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray scored 10 points in the overtime period during Monday's victory, ending with 36 points on 13-of-20 shooting to go with nine assists, five rebounds, one steal and six 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

    The Nuggets escaped with a 10-point victory over a plucky Jazz outfit as Murray got hot late. He scored 20 of his team-high 36 points in the fourth quarter and overtime period, putting the Nuggets on his back down the stretch. He is going to need to shoulder more responsibility with both Will Barton (knee) and Gary Harris (hip) yet to return. Game 3 is on Wednesday and Murray will look to continue his red-hot form in that one.
