Former Kentucky Wildcats Devin Booker and Jamal Murray got into a fierce competition at the Pepsi Center on Friday night.

The Phoenix Suns guard nailed a three-pointer over Murray in the second quarter and stole his bow-and-arrow celebration after the score.

The Nuggets floor general answered later with an emphatic jam down the lane in the third quarter. Booker stood behind center Tyson Chandler as the last line of defense, but he couldn't impede Murray's pathway to the hoop.                

The Suns led 77-66 with 3:55 left in the third.
