Jamal Murray scored 21 points for his Denver Nuggets, Monday, to catch up the third loss for his guest, Milwaukee Bucks 109-95, in the NBA Basketball.
Murray took advantage of the absence of the injured Greek Pax star Yannis Antiochonombo, leading his team to win the number 43 against 21 losses.
Murray was one of 6 players in Denver who scored more than 10 points, while his teammates Paul Millsab starred with “20 points and 10 rebounds”, and Jeremy Grant with “19 points”.
Pax tried to keep up with his host, but he fell behind in the first quarter by 15 points, which made it difficult for the mission, and although the advantage in the next two quarters was in his interest “30-23 and 17-14”, the owners of the land maintained their progress, and expanded the difference again in The last quarter “33-24”.
The 23 points scored by substitute Kyle Corver, the best record in the Pax, did not prevent the specter of losing from the team, and it seemed clear that the team was missing its Greek star, who on Friday suffered a left knee injury during the loss against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Antitoconembo also missed the Milwaukee defeat against the Phoenix Suns.
The loss did not affect the status of Milwaukee, seeking to be the third team in the history of the championship to achieve 70 wins in the regular season.
The Eastern Region leaders, who have already secured their qualification to the playoffs, must win their remaining 17 games to enter history.
