The Denver Nuggets defeated the Dallas Mavericks 105-102 Tuesday night at Pepsi Center. It was just the Nuggets second win in its last six tries as Denver moved to 23-21 on the season and 16-5 at home.

Here’s how each Nuggets player performed.

Jamal Murray (C+) - Murray is stuck in the third real funk of his sophomore season. To start the year, Murray went through a 2-21 cold streak from three-point land. In November, he suffered through a similar 2-22 stretch from beyond the arc. Across eight games in 2018, Murray is shooting just above 40 percent from the field. He didn't attempt his first field goal until the second quarter and never really got into a rhythm. Murray did rebound in the second half to scored seven points in the second half on 3-7 shooting.
