Watch: Jamal Murray throws pass to himself off backboard for the dunk

Jamal Murray with an early candidate for dunk of the year

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Denver Nuggets Russell Lansford-USA TODAY Sports

Jamal Murray had a dazzling performance against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night. While it was not his most efficient night shooting, he had a number of plays that left whoever was guarding him standing dumbfounded and looking for their shoes. Murray ended up with a couple of dunks and none was more impressive than the one he threw down in the third quarter. After getting stuck near the free throw line Murray had the wherewithal to toss the ball up and off the backboard and grab it for the put back dunk. It may only be Cecember but it looks like we’ve got a leader in the clubhouse when it comes to the Denver Nuggets dunk of the year.
