West – Game 1:

  • Phoenix Suns 107 – Denver Nuggets 125

Highlights:  Talk about starting this series off with a statement win. The Denver Nuggets were in control from start to finish against the Phoenix Suns in Game 1 of this Western Conference semifinals series, and left with a 125-107 win. Denver got out to a 17-point lead at halftime, and despite a strong third quarter from Phoenix, Denver ended up cruising to a win. Jamal Murray was the primary reason for that, as the Nuggets guard finished with 34 points, nine assists and shot 54.2% from the field. When the Suns started to get back into the game in the fourth quarter, Murray took it upon himself to put the game out of reach and Denver never looked back. For the Suns, Kevin Durant and Devin Booker combined for 56 points, but it wasn’t enough to contend with a hot-shooting Nuggets squad. Read more at:  (Jasmyn Wimbish/CBS NBA)
