T-Wolves Lose

Denver’s Jamal Murray dropped in 30 points to lead the Nuggets to a 133­107 rout of the Minnesota Timberwolves in Colorado last night. Paul Millsap netted 23 points for the Nuggets, who have won two-of-three to move within a game of Golden State for the top spot in the West. Nikola Jokic (YO-kitch) added 18 points for Denver, which shot 60-percent as a team. Karl-Anthony Towns racked up 34 points and 10 rebounds to pace Minnesota, which had won its previous two. Towns played in the game after missing Sunday’s win over the Knicks with a knee injury. Andrew Wiggins, Jeff Teague, and Robert Covington did not play due to injury. Tyus Jones of Apple Valley was the only other starter in double-figures with 16 points in defeat. Minnesota is at Utah tomorrow.
