Nuggets beat Hawks 128-108, tie Boston for NBA's best record

DENVER (AP) Jamal Murray scored a season-high 41 points, Nikola Jokic had his 18th triple-double of the season and the Denver Nuggets won their third straight game, beating the Atlanta Hawks 128-108 on Saturday night.

Jokic finished with 14 points, 18 rebounds and 10 assists and recorded the 94th regular-season triple-double of his career. Michael Porter Jr. added 23 points for the Nuggets, who are 19-1 in their last 20 home games and moved into a tie with the Boston Celtics for the best record in the NBA at 37-16.

With the Nuggets' success, Murray said Denver has to be ready to deal with the best effort from opposing teams on a nightly basis.
