The Denver Nuggets, battling to keep a high seed in the West and at the start of 9-of-11 on the road, need to beat the below .500 teams on their schedule the rest of the way.

Such as the Charlotte Hornets. But doing so took coming back on the Hornets in the fourth quarter, and then a Jamal Murray fadeaway that proved to be the game-winner.

Murray finished with 18 points to lead a balanced Denver attack where seven players scored in double figures. Nikola Jokic added 14 points, 11 rebounds, and eight assists, but spent much of the night frustrated with the officiating.

Devonte’ Graham had 24 to lead Charlotte.
