Murray, Nuggets Hang on in Game 3, Cut Lakers’ Lead to 2-1
(AP) — Jamal Murray had 28 points, 12 assists and eight rebounds and the Denver Nuggets beat the Los Angeles Lakers 114-106 to cut the Lakers' lead to 2-1 in the Western Conference finals.
The Nuggets lost almost all of a 20-point lead in the fourth quarter but held on to win, avoiding a 3-0 hole that would have been daunting even for a team that's rallied from big deficits throughout the playoffs.
Jerami Grant added a playoff career-high 26 points and Nikola Jokic had 22 points and 10 rebounds for the Nuggets.
LeBron James had 30 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds for the Lakers.
