Jamal Murray and the Denver Nuggets are moving on to the second round of the NBA playoffs after sending the Los Angeles Lakers home in dramatic fashion with a 108-106 win in Game 5 on Monday night in Denver.

Murray played the role of hero once again for the Nuggets as his jumper with just over three seconds left in the game gave Denver the win. He also had the winning bucket in Game 2.

The guard celebrated with his teammates when the final buzzer sounded and then he quickly found his dad, who was sitting courtside, and shared a special moment with him, which cameras were able to capture.
