MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Jamal Murray failed to make a fadeaway on Denvers first possession and then tried a floater that spun around the rim and spit out in portending fashion.

Neither of those misses hurt the normally smooth-shooting Nuggets point guard like what came next for him on defense in Minnesota in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals.

Murray hurt his right elbow trying to move around a high screen by Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert early in the first quarter of the 110-75 loss in Game 6. He could be seen shaking out the arm trying to loosen it up afterward.

I was never really getting into my rhythm again, and my team obviously needed me to tonight, and I didnt, Murray said after the game, according to the Associated Press. So Im disappointed in myself for not being able to give them the right production that I know I can.

Murray has had an up-and-down series against Minnesota. He went just 3-for-18 from the field in the Nuggets' Game 2 loss and was fined $100,000 for throwing objects onto the floor in frustration. Murray then shot 50% from the field during Denver's three-game winning streak before his 4-for-18 stinker in Game 6.

Murray came through in the clutch in the Nuggets' first-round series against the Los Angeles Lakers, hitting a buzzer-beating fadeaway to win Game 2 and a go-ahead floater in the closing seconds of Game 5 to seal the series. Electric! Inside Ball Arena for Jamal Murray's Game 2 buzzer-beater
