Nikola Jokic scored a team-high 30 points in a tough Game 2 loss vs. the Lakers on Sunday, finishing 9-of-20 from the field and 11-of-12 from the line in 39 minutes.
The Nuggets' stars showed up tonight, with Jamal Murray adding 25 points, six boards, four assists, two steals, two blocks and two triples. Jokic didn't make a 3-pointer until very late in the fourth quarter, after not even attempting any in Game 1. Denver goes as Jokic goes, so they should be encouraged by his 3-point attempts (1-of-4), assists and ability to get to the line. They'll need all of that and more to avoid a 3-0 deficit on Tuesday.
