The Denver Nuggets’ season was on the line Tuesday night at Walt Disney World in Orlando. Down 3-1 in their first-round playoff series against the Utah Jazz, these Nuggets needed one of their stars to step up.

Guard Jamal Murray more than responded when his team needed it the most.

Down nine at halftime and by as much as 15 early in the third quarter, Denver came storming back en route to a thrilling 117-107 victory.

This win sets up an important Game 6 between Utah and Denver Thursday. It also had people talking after Murray dropped an absurd 33 points in the second half and 42 points for the game two days after he scored 50.
