Nuggets’ Jamal Murray says Nikola Jokic does everything ‘except jump’

The Nuggets took 59-47 advantage into halftime, paced by 14 points, 10 assists and five rebounds from Jokic.

Jokic made a free throw with seven seconds remaining to end a tie and made two more with 5.6 seconds left for the final margin, extending Denver's winning streak to six games. "There's nothing that he can't do except jump", Murray said with a laugh. He came in averaging a team-high 17.3 points per game.

Beasley's 3-pointer from the corner gave Denver a 3-point lead.

Taking a double-digit lead into the second half, the Nuggets had an opportunity to pick up a big time road win, while also picking up their sixth-straight win in the process. Trailing by a point with two minutes to play, Leonard air-balled a three-point attempt, but made up for it with a long jumper - and a double fist pump in celebration - on the Raptors' next trip down the floor.

John Collins led Atlanta with 24 points.

Paul George added 17 points for the Thunder, who are 15-3 since losing their first four games.

"It's amusing, I was looking at his stats the last five games, we won five in a row, he was averaging 12 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, but his field goal percentage, three-point percentage are not what we expect from Nikola".

Toronto still maintained the momentum though and tied the game at 94 with 4:40 remaining.

Julius Randle had 37 points, but the New Orleans Pelicans fell to the Los Angeles Clippers 129-126, with Tobias Harris sinking two free throws at the death to secure the win.

A missed free throw by Juancho Hernangomez with 12 seconds left gave Toronto one last gasp, setting up Leonard's game-tying basket.

Stat leaders for the Nuggets were Murray, who finished with 21 points on 9-of-21 shooting from the field to go along with eight assists and seven rebounds.
