The Nuggets led by as much as 20 points in the game before a furious run saw the Lakers cut the lead down to just three points in the final five minutes of play. Denver was on the verge of a catastrophic collapse, but thankfully for them, Murray stepped up when they needed him most and hit a dagger trey in the final minutes to vanquish LA’s comeback hopes.
Murray finished with 28 points on 10-of-17 shooting, to go along with eight rebounds, 12 assists and two steals — closely missing a very impressive triple-double. The 23-year-old also hit four 3-pointers to cap off a terrific all-around performance.
Thanks to Murray’s heroics, the Nuggets have cut the series deficit to 2-1. Game 4 is scheduled for Thursday, with Denver having a tremendous opportunity to tie the series.
A loss in Game 4, however, will put them down 3-1, which is not going to be an ideal situation against a powerhouse Lakers side. Then again, the Nuggets have come back from such a significant disadvantage twice already in this amazing playoffs run, so it would be foolish to count them out juts yet.
