Jamal Murray Held In Check During Game 3 Loss

Denver Nuggets point/shooting guard Jamal Murray attempted a season-low six shot attempts during Thursdays loss to the San Antonio Spurs in Game 3. Murray collected just six points to go along with two assists, entirely flummoxed by the Spurs defensive unit. His play this season has wildly fluctuated against San Antonio, maxing him a vexing DFS option heading into Game 4 on Saturday. Monte Morris played 25 minutes off the bench in Game 3 and excelled, giving head coach Mike Malone another option with his team two losses away from elimination.

Nikola Jokic Collects 22 Points In Game 3 Defeat

Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic led the way for his squad in Game 3s loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday, finishing with a team-best 22 points to go along with his eight rebounds and seven assists. Jokic was held out of the double-double column for the first time in the series but knocked down three triples while turning the ball over only once. Denver figures to continue running their offense through their MVP candidate, which should give him ample opportunities in Game 4 on Saturday.

Malik Beasley Drills Five Triples Off Bench

Denver Nuggets shooting guard Malik Beasley caught fire from long range during Thursdays Game 3 loss to the San Antonio Spurs, finishing 5-for-6 from behind the arc. It was one of Beasleys better performances all season, adding nine rebounds and two assists to go with his 20 points across 28 minutes. With Will Bartons offensive struggles in the starting five, Beasley has seen his role steadily increase throughout the first three games, which is likely to continue heading into Game 4 on Saturday.
