In a high scoring affair between the Denver Nuggets and the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Nuggets were letting it fly from behind the three point line, attempting a huge total of 37 threes. The hot shooting from Denver developed a large lead through 3 quarters, but the Thunder battled back to tie the game with 1.4 seconds left in the 4th quarter on a Paul George contested 3. The Nuggets got the last laugh though, as a broken inbounds play led to a wide open Gary Harris three to win at the buzzer.

Murray was huge in the final quarter, finishing with 33 points, 5 assists, and 3 rebounds, while hitting 5 of 8 threes on the night.

      The ones that are on national TV have it listed on the schedule. All others are just on regionals channels only available in certain areas. All games are available with NBA League Pass.

    That Nuggets jersey is solid. Those Nuggets shorts are trash.

    Why list Cousins for the Pelicans? He was having a great season but he’s done for the year. May be misleading for some readers.

    Murray has a real chance to become the best UK player in the NBA not named Davis or Cousins…even better then Wall. All he needs is more strength. He reminds a lot of a combo of Steph Curry and Westbrook…ok that’s a stretch…but he just plain balls.
