Jamal Murray and the Denver Nuggets capitalized on some sloppy play from the Minnesota Timberwolves to close out the first half of Game 4 on Sunday night. After a Michael Porter Jr. fastbreak dunk, the T-Wolves attempted to quickly throw the ball down court in order to get one last shot before halftime.

That plan was foiled by Murray, who stunningly intercepted the pass and drained a jaw-dropping buzzer-beater from near half court. With Murray standing just a few feet away, TNT announcer Kevin Harlan delivered a phenomenal call of the play which sent both the teams to the locker rooms.

"That's intercepted. Murray, good if it goes... Got it! Got it! Got it! A big-time three! Oh, what a shot!" shouted Harlan.

The result was that the Nuggets were able to increase their halftime lead from eight to 13 points in just two seconds, thanks to those hustle plays from Porter and Murray.

After sinking the shot, Murray could be seen staring face-to-face with Harlan as he electrified the home-viewing audience with his brilliant call. The 27-year-old was then whisked away by his teammates as they celebrated the big momentum shift ahead of the break.
