Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Tallies five points in start

Murray (rest) contributed five points (2-8 FG, 1-6 3Pt) four rebounds and four assists across 30 minutes in Tuesday's 96-86 preseason loss to the Thunder.

Murray took the floor after being held out for rest last Sunday and generated a relatively uninspiring stat line. However, Emmanuel Mudiay, his competition for the starting point guard job, went scoreless over five minutes off the bench, so Murray certainly didn't lose any ground. Mudiay didn't impress on the second unit Sunday either, so Murray could well be deemed the winner of the battle in the coming days on the strength of what appears to be a better overall preseason body of work.
