For all the bad performances up and down Denver's roster, Murray deserves some credit tonight. The Nuggets' starting point guard did commit five turnovers, he did shoot just 3-8 from three-point range, but he battled in the fourth quarter and played with passion tonight. Murray was frustrated, whether it was the officiating, turnovers, missed shots or all three, but he recorded a big-time block late in the game and played well enough for the Nuggets to win.
Maybe it was a Kentucky/Louisville thing with Jamal Murray (Kentucky) going up against Jazz point guard Donovan Mitchell (Louisville) who played one year for the Cardinals, maybe it wasn't, but Murray came out with that look in his eye tonight. He was consistent scoring the ball all game. Murray tallied eight points in the first quarter, eight in the second, seven in the third and three more in the fourth once the game was already in hand for a total of 26 points on the night. The highlight of his night was when Murray skyed for an offensive rebound, dribbled the ball out to the three-point line and drilled a three in the second quarter.

Murray paced Denver with 18 first-half points. He was aggressive and confident. Murray scored at the rim, from midrange and from three. He sputtered a little in the second half when he scored 13 points on just 3-11 shooting over the final two quarters. But Murray's play was the reason Denver controlled the game until the third quarter.
