Murray scores 34 points, short-handed Hawks beat Nuggets

ATLANTA (AP) Dejounte Murray scored 34 points, rookie A.J. Griffin tied a career high with 24 subbing for injured Trae Young and the short-handed Atlanta Hawks beat the Denver Nuggets 117-109 on Friday night.

"I think we just showed how deep we are," Murray said. "Young talent and bunch of hard-working guys. We had three key guys out, three starters, and it's hard to win games in this league like that, especially playing a team like that that's feeling each other. Obviously their record shows what they've been doing this season."

Denver star Nikola Jokic, the two-time defending NBA MVP, had just four points in the first half on 2-of-5 shooting, but he and the Nuggets got hot in the third, cutting a 16-point deficit with a 14-1 run to make it 64-62 on Aaron Gordon's layup. Jokic had 24 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists.
