The Denver Nuggets were reeling a bit after a blowout loss to the Golden State Warriors earlier in the week. Luckily, Jamal Murray bailed the Nuggets out of another embarrassing loss on Thursday night vs. the Charlotte Hornets. Murray banged a fadeaway jumper in the closing seconds to give Denver the W.

Murray led the Nuggets with 18 points. Nikola Jokic had 14 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists in the win. Jokic finished with 42.25 fantasy points on DraftKings, which wasn’t a very inspiring performance by his standards. Murray had 33.25 at $6,800 — again not an above average fantasy outing. Overall, this game wasn’t great for fantasy, but the four-game slate leaves not as many options.
