Murray, Jokic lead Nuggets to 124-111 win over Nets

After getting a pep talk from his coach, Jamal Murray came through with a big game for the Denver Nuggets.

Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan said consistently Tuesday they view Garoppolo as a long-term answer at the quarterback position. And some wonder if that were the case, why not just wait until he’s a free agent this offseason to nab him and keep the second-round pick that the Niners value greatly? But San Francisco looks like it didn’t want to get in a bidding war with other QB-needy teams for Garoppolo this offseason and risk the chance of losing him.

The defending NBA champions have now lost seven of their past 11 games after falling Monday night to the fourth-worst team in the NBA, the Mavericks. Between a developing mini drama with the front office over spending, a back injury to Kevin Love and rumors of a trade involving Carmelo Anthony, the Cavs’ distractions are playing out on the court.

Cavaliers big man Tristan Thompson, who said Sunday he’s earned every penny of his $82 million extension, didn’t attempt a shot and scored zero points while registering a minus-22 in the 104-97 loss in Dallas.

LeBron James and Kyrie Irving didn’t play well, either, going a combined 16 of 40 from the field.

“You have to kind of pick your poison on the pick-and-roll,” Marc Gasol told The Washington Times after Porter drained six 3-pointers against the Grizzlies. “When the initial action is not played correctly and they get to the paint either with a drive or a pass, somebody has to help and you have to Cheap Jerseys Outlets pick whether to come off Bradley Beal or to come off Porter.
