LOS ANGELES — Denver Nuggets players and coaches continued to brush off any chatter about Jamal Murray’s late-game incident involving Luke Walton and the Lakers on Friday ahead of their rematch Tuesday night.
“It ain’t real. That’s some suburban beef, man,” Will Barton said following Tuesday morning’s shootaround. “Come on. Somebody’s mad about somebody getting hot and talking a little bit? That happens every day in the NBA.”
Still, the Nuggets insist that they’ll be ready for whatever the Lakers throw their way.
