On a night where Jamal Murray stole the show for Denver dropping 22 points on 12 shots, the real show stealer was Klay Thompson who scored 60 points in 3 quarters against the Indiana Pacers. Klay was read hot from just about everywhere on the floor shooting 21-33 from the floor and 8-14 from the three-point line. Thompson already held the single quarter record when he scored 37 points in a third quarter last season. Well he was back at it with his best “Black Mamba” impersonation to date.
Jamal Murray helped Denver escape Philly with a 106-98 win as Philadelphia is one of the exclusive list of teams the Nuggets have held under 100 points this season. Will Barton started the night off slow missing his first 4 field goals but ended the night with 22 points and regained the confidence he was playing with before the injury. Gallinari finished the game with a game high 24 points. The Nuggets finished with 19 turnovers and the Sixers finished with 17. Turnovers have haunted both teams this early season as they are both top 3 in turnovers per game this season.
