Denver Nuggets star Jamal Murray was ejected from Monday night’s game against the Dallas Mavericks after receiving a Flagrant 2 foul for hitting Tim Hardaway Jr. in a place you really don’t want to be hit. The incident took place with the Nuggets leading 80-73 with 4:51 to go in the third quarter.

Perhaps that motivated Hardaway, who went on a 7-0 run all by himself after taking that hit and scored 16 points in the quarter.

However, the Nuggets still came out on top 117-113, led by 30 points from Michael Porter Jr.
