Westbrook, Murray tussle as Nuggets beat Thunder 109-98

DENVER (AP) For all his offensive contributions and rebounding, Nikola Jokic's most important role in the end was peacemaker.

Jokic scored 24 points, Jamal Murray had 19 and the Denver Nuggets beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 109-98 on Friday night after Murray and Russell Westbrook had a heated exchange.

Westbrook and Murray pushed each other and argued after lining up next to each other for a jump ball in the final seconds. Jokic tried to get between them, and Westbrook threatened to beat up Jokic while being restrained. No blows were exchanged, but the final moments played out amid heightened tensions.
