Jamal Murray scored 24 points and the top-seeded Nuggets routed the Wolves 109-80 in the opener of their playoff series Sunday night. 

The Timberwolves were without starting forward Jaden McDaniels, their best perimeter defender, who broke his right hand punching a wall in Minnesota’s final regular season game. They were also down key reserve big man Naz Reid (wrist).

Wolves forward Karl-Anthony Towns promised things would be different in Game 2 Wednesday night.

“I don’t think this team has many nights like this,” he said of the Wolves, who hadn’t been held to 80 or fewer points since Nov. 19, 2016.

Game 2 is Wednesday night in Denver at 8:30 p.m. Central.

The first game at Target Center is Friday night’s Game 3 set for an 8:30 p.m. Central start.
