With the game seemingly out of reach in the 3rd quarter the Nuggets were poised to go down 2-0 in their first round matchup against the Spurs. Enter Kentucky’s Blue Arrow and a 19 point deficit was erased. With 4:28 left in the 3rd quarter Jamal Murray was shooting 0-7 (all inside the arc) with two points from the line and the Nuggets were down 78-59. Murray finished off the quarter missing another shot and getting one more free throw. The 4th quarter Jamal turned everything around by going 9-10 from the field (3-4 from three) and scoring 21 points to help push the Nuggets to the 114-105 win over Popovich’s Spurs.
The outburst came after he had a mid game snack thanks to a fan!
Maybe he should eat pretzels more often!
