On Wednesday, the Denver Nuggets will fight it out against the Minnesota Timberwolves in a Western Conference playoff contest at 10:00 p.m. ET at Ball Arena. The Nuggets and the Timberwolves are at an even 5-5 over their past ten head to heads.

On Sunday, Denver made easy work of Minnesota and carried off a 109-80 win.

They got their win on the backs of several key players, but it was Jamal Murray out in front who earned 24 points along with 8 assists and 8 rebounds.

It should come as no surprise, then, that the Nuggets were dropping bombs beyond the arc and wound up with an excellent 16 shots from deep. They are a perfect 12-0 when they drop that many from long range.
