But Jamal Murray tore his ACL just before the playoffs started. Furthermore, Denver advanced past the first round. Phoenix eliminated them in straight games in the second round.

Murray is not only healthy again, but he looks to have regained the form that helped him lead Denver to the Western Conference finals against the Los Angeles Lakers in 2020.

In Denver’s five-game series win against Minnesota in the first round, he exploded for 27.2 points per game to lead the Nuggets and reignite the two-man punch with Jokic, who averaged 26 points, 12 rebounds, and nine assists.

Booker scored 37 points a game and dished out six assists, while Durant scored 28 points per game and grabbed seven boards and six dimes.
