Jamal Murray is absolutely coming into his own. After struggling to find his shot early in the year, Murray has found it - and then some. He’s been scorching hot as of late - in the past 15 games alone, he is averaging 18.3 points and shooting 45.7 percent from deep, a mark even more impressive considering the 5.4 three-point attempts he’s taking per game in that span.
The Blue Arrow’s hot shooting streak continued Friday night against the Utah Jazz, as he went 6-for-7 from three to finish with 26 points and lead Denver to a 99-91 win. Murray finished with six rebounds and three assists as well, and tied teammate Trey Lyles in scoring leaders for the game.
As each game passes, it seems like Murray’s confidence is growing more and more. Scoring looks so easy for him. His crafty layup in the early minutes of the game? Ridiculous. His monster offensive rebound followed by the step back three? Absolutely insane.
Murray is doing great things and the Nuggets are succeeding as a result. Keep it up, Jamal!
