Jamal Murray is his main partner with 26.1 points per game, and four other Nuggets are scoring in double figures. Denver has a powerful offense that averages 113.3 ppg.

The Nuggets shot 44 percent from the field and 10 of 30 from the 3-point line as they scored 36 points in the third quarter to erase an early 16-point deficit, but they fell short in the fourth quarter as they could not stop the Suns’ duo of Booker and Durant.
