The Denver Nuggets edged the Golden State Warriors 115-108 in a fourth-straight matchup that came down to the final few possessions.
Here’s how each Nuggets player performed.
Jamal Murray (A) – Murray took a Stephen Curry knee to the thigh early in the first quarter and was playing on one leg for the rest of the game. Denver’s starting point guard got worked on by the Nuggets’ training staff during timeouts and rode a stationary bike in the tunnel while he was on the bench but nothing gave Murray much relief. He gutted it out though for 28 minutes, though, in typical Murray fashion and still was able to tally 15 points on 4-9 shooting.
Gary Harris (B+) – Fresh off his game-winner against the Thunder, Harris couldn’t find his rhythm on offense and finished with 16 points on just 4-13 shooting. But Harris had to shadow Curry on the defensive end of the floor for much of the night — an assignment that takes a toll on any defender. Harris played a team-high 39 minutes.
