NBA 2018-19: Denver Nuggets vs San Antonio Spurs, 3 Talking Points
#2 Denver's offense finally turns up
Nuggets have been cold for some time on the offensive end. They lost to the same Spurs team in their last game. Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray were both kept quiet in that game. Jokic scored just 4 points in that match, whereas Murray managed only 9.
But it was not the case tonight. Both the star players exploded at home and posted big numbers. Jokic finished with 21 points, nine assists and nine rebounds, whereas Murray had a big night with 31 points and six rebounds. Both the players were supported well by the rest of the team.
Malik Beasley came off the bench and scored 21 points. He twisted his ankle in the last quarter and had to leave the game which will be a cause for concern.
Murray also twisted his ankle in the fourth quarter but decided to play through the pain and complete the game.
