Jamal Murray has opened the season incredibly strong and it continued Tuesday night against the Heat. Murray dropped a game-high 21 points on an efficient 9-of-15 shooting from the field and 1-of-2 from beyond the arc.

Murray also showcased his passing ability as he finished with four assists, one of which came via a phenomenal pocket pass to Paul Millsap for the easy bucket.

It was not just scoring and passing as Murray also hauled in five rebounds to compliment his solid defense and energy. On the season, Murray is now averaging 18.9 points, 3.6 assists, and 4.9 rebounds per game. Murray is also shooting a career-high 45.2 percent from the field, while complimenting that with a 35.5 percent three-point percentage.
