Prayers up for Jamal Murray!

NBA: Denver Nuggets at Golden State Warriors Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Nuggets welcomed back Jamal Murray to the lineup on Monday night against Golden State. After missing the Nuggets past three games with right knee soreness, Murray returned to the starting lineup and played fairly well scoring 17 points on 5-of-15 shooting from the field, 1-of-5 from beyond the three-point line.
