Jamal Murray beats halftime buzzer with 55-foot heave

The Denver Nuggets jumped out to a 64-49 halftime lead over the Minnesota Timberwolves in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals.

For just over a 12-minute stretch bridging the first and second quarters, the Nuggets went on a 31-10 run that included nine consecutive made shots.

The first half ended on a high note for Denver with Jamal Murray’s 55-foot buzzer-beater.

It was the longest made shot of Murray’s career and the longest by any player in the playoffs since New Orleans Pelicans’ Darius Miller’s 72-foot heave in 2018. Murray finished the half with 6 assists, 2 rebounds and a steal.

Led by Aaron Gordon’s 14 points (6-for-6), the Nuggets shot 64.3% as a team, their best field goal percentage in a half this playoffs.

Anthony Edwards leads all scorers with 23 points.

If Denver wins, it will even the series at two games each.
