Throughout the NBA restart at Walt Disney world, no player has been more dramatic and entertaining as the young rising superstar, Jamal Murray. Jamal Murray plays on the Denver Nuggets and recently just brought them to the western conference finals. The Nuggets are taking on Lebron James and Anthony Davis which the Lakers lead to series 3-1 best out of 7. Jamal Murray is a 23 point guard that is playing outstanding for this Nugget team. All Murray did was collect 32 points and 8 assists while shooting 12 of 20 from the field. He was good, Lebron James covered him in the fourth quarter in game 4. Lebron played good defense on this young kid in the fourth quarter but, Lebron said, “ I knew it was winning time, and Jamal had it going, this kid is special.” Lebron had that to say about this superstar Murray but the Nugget s did go down 114-108 last night.
This young kid is so hard to guard because he gets to the basket so quickly and players have a hard time defending him. If the Nuggets want to beat this really stacked Laker team Murray needs to shoot more from the 3 point range. Murray went through cramps towards the end of the game last night. After the game, he had ice packs on his legs. Murray said, “I got a lot of gas in the tank.” Murray is not going to miss a game due to cramps because he wants to go to the NBA finals and win a championship. Jamal has been doing everything for this Denver team. He has been putting up at least 20 points a game every night. No one expected this Nugget team to go this far. But with the help of Murray, I believe this team can possibly go to the finals. In any case, and no matter what happens the rest of the way, no will forget what Murray has done in the bubble. In 18 playoff games, he averaged 26.9 points and 6.6 assists while shooting 51 percent from the field and 46.6 percent from 3 point range. He also owns one of the post-season’s most bizarre statics.
In game 2, the Nuggets outscored the Lakers by 16 points in the 44 minutes when Murray was on the court. In the 4 minutes he was on the bench, the Lakers outscored the Nuggets by 18 points and won by 2. This shows Murray is a real superstar for this Denver team. Denver is down 3-1 in the series. They are looking for a win in the next game and if they don’t, they will be unlimited from the finals.
