Kiz: As the Nuggets scuffle toward the NBA all-star break with a record barely above .500, point guard Jamal Murray tells us he’s not stressing. But is it OK if I’m a little jittery? Yes, Denver has dealt with more than its share of injuries, making it difficult to establish chemistry. But is there something more amiss with the Nuggets than bad luck? And shouldn’t a team that regards itself as a championship contender now be worried about being relegated to the crap shoot of a 7-10 play-in tourney? Singer: They should be anxious sitting in seventh place, though with nearly 40 games to go, you’ll get absolutely no one to admit that. What’s become apparent to me, is given the compressed nature of the schedule, each team is simply trying to keep its head above water.
