Tie game with around 35 second left out of the time out Coach Malone  runs a pick & Roll with Murray and Jokic so Jokic could roll to the Dirk sweet spot and ISO.

 

As Jokic went to set the screen Murray waved him off and pulled it out, Jokic was visibly upset on the court. Murray went ISO and jacked up a fade away 3 and airballed it. Malone flipped out on him during the time out and the Thunder came out and Russ went to the line to win it. Terrible possession where Murray tried to be a hero.

 

Murray got jerked around again last night anyway. I just can't stand Malone. No Mudiay and yet Murray plays just 25 minutes, lol come on. And talk about hero ball, the guy stealing Murray's minutes (Wil Barton) and playing backup pg was 2-15 shooting last night. Mike Malone is one of the damn worst coaches in the league. Murray prob got sick of watching Barton jack up shot after shot while Murray was on the bench.

He's starting to get less duds in between his blow ups!

Although today's game was because of Harris being out, still encouraging!

 

The guy is averaging 18 per the last month plus. This game has zero to do with Harris.

Not necessarily purely to do with Harris being out.

I meant more that because Harris is out, it's much easier for him to have this kind of game because he has to become the alpha dog.

Would love to see him continue to do this with fully healthy Harris and Jokic.

Man, I was super nervous during the first couple months of the season after spending a nice 9th round pick on this guy, but he's rewarded us patient owners lately. His value is trending straight up too now that Malone seems to have stopped messing with his minutes. Dude's legit.

Since the start of December, per-36...

Player B: 23.5 PTS, 3.9 AST, 3.7 REB, 3.0 TOV, .605 TS% (519.35 minutes)

 

Player A is Jamal Murray.
Player B is Donovan Mitchell.

“Murray has been one of the most efficient young scorers in the NBA lately with his 63.2 TS% on a 23.8 usage rate over his last 13. To put that in perspective, no other qualifier under 22 years old can even hit 60 TS% and a 20 usage rate over the last 13 games. He's been the 17th-ranked player in nine-category leagues since Dec. 1.”
