It took some time for Jamal Murray to warm up.

But he caught fire in the fourth and led the Denver Nuggets back from a 19-point deficit to a 114-105 win over the San Antonio Spurs in game two of their first round playoff series.

Murray started the game was 0-for-8 from the field. But he poured in 21 of his 24 points in the final period and hit eight of his last nine shot attempts.

Down by seven points through three quarters, the Nuggets finally caught the Spurs on Murray's basket in the lane with 3:41 left in the game.

Nikola Jokic nearly had a triple-double, finishing with 21 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists.

Gary Harris had 23 points and Paul Millsap, who carried the load on offense early in the game, had 20 points and seven rebounds.

The Nuggets overcame a 19-point deficit, making it the largest comeback in the team's postseason history.


The Nuggets tied the series at one game each. Game three will be in San Antonio on Thursday night.
