Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray shoot 3-pointers to fend off Heat


The Nuggets protected the ball like it was caked in olive oil.

To their credit, they shot like they were on fire.

Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray each buried clutch 3-pointers late Friday night as the Nuggets survived the feisty Heat, 124-119. Denver hung on despite 20 turnovers, including a handful of egregious mistakes.

It took a blistering shooting night — 17 for 28 from 3-point range — to ensure they weren’t undone by their miscues. That same level of carelessness won’t work come Sunday, when the 23-12 Nuggets host the surging Celtics.
