Jamal Murray went wild and scored 23 of his 37 points in the fourth quarter to power the no. 1 Denver Nuggets to a 2-0 series lead against the Los Angeles Lakers.
The star point guard who suffered ACL tear and missed two seasons is now hooping like his old self.
He finished along with 10 rebounds and 5 assists.
Nikola Jokic meanwhile added another triple-double on his name and moved up third all-time in the category after his 23 points, 17 rebounds, and 12 assists Game 2.
The Lakers were pretty in contention but a costly missed layup by LeBron James put Denver on a commanding series lead.
James was one rebound shy of a triple-double with 22 points, nine boards, and 10 assists but wasn’t enough to steal a game on the road.
Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals is on Los Angeles were the Lakers remain unbeaten in this postseason.
