Jamal Murray scored 30 in his return to the lineup Friday night in a Nuggets loss at Phoenix. Murray missed Wednesday’s game at the Los Angeles Clippers with concussion symptoms. He was evaluated by doctors before the game and cleared to play.
Murray was one of the few bright spots for Denver. The (23-23) Nuggets have lost six of eight, including two at home to teams who combined were 34 games below .500.
