Denver Nuggets take control of the series by winning Game 2 behind a spectacular Jamal Murray performance.

By defeating the Minnesota Timberwolves 122-113 on Wednesday, the Denver Nuggets improved to a 2-0 series lead.

With 40 points and many dribble-assists, Jamal Murray was the team's top scorer. His stepback jumper was consistent for the most of the game,

and he made clutch shot after clutch shot to help the Nuggets hold off the Timberwolves' second-half charge.

Throughout the first two games of the series, the Nuggets had been largely at ease. At first glance, Game 2 appeared to be another rout. 

Denver held a lead of more than 20 points in the second quarter, but the Timberwolves managed to cut it to 15 at the break before

going on a huge run to grab the lead for themselves in the third. Denver needed a lot from its stars tonight, and they most definitely got it from Murray,

who is already edging away from the "Bubble Jamal" tag.Here are my main takeaways from the Timberwolves vs. Nuggets Game 2 on Wednesday night:

Denver is physically superior to Minnesota and equals it. The Nuggets were ready for a stronger performance from the Timberwolves going into Game 2.
