The Denver Nuggets star guard Jamal Murray’s 3-pointer with 0.9 seconds remaining lifted his team to a thrilling 121-120 win over the Damian Lillard-led Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday night.

“It was a play for (Nikola Jokic) to get space and let him work,” Murray said, via ESPN. “He fumbled it a little and he told me to come get it. I turned and looked at the clock, saw that I didn’t have to rush and I just went into my move.”
