Jamal Murray scored 23 points in his first game of the NBA restart and made the tying and go-ahead baskets as the Denver Nuggets beat the Utah Jazz 134-132 in two overtimes. The Nuggets overcame Donovan Mitchell's 35 points for Utah. Mitchell made a 3-pointer with 4.2 seconds remaining in the second overtime but missed a desperation heave from near half-court as the game ended. Murray was playing his first game since March 11 after missing four with left hamstring tightness. He sank a fallaway jumper for a 123-all tie and then beat the shot clock with a go-ahead 3-pointer.
