Jamal Murray News

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray scored eight points with seven rebounds, three assists and three turnovers in 24 minutes during a blowout loss to the Rockets on Wednesday. Chris Paul made him look pretty bad today, but Emmanuel Mudiay looked even worse. Paul Millsap was starting to handle the ball more with his assists trending up in a big way, so now the Nuggets will need someone else to create offense. Murray was the leading scorer on the team over the previous dozen, so now he may be able to add more to those stat lines.

Updating a previous note, the Nuggets will start Murray -- not Emmanuel Mudiay -- at point guard Wednesday against Houston, Gina Mizell of the Denver Post reports. Denver initially stated that Mudiay would make his first start of the season, but that decision was quickly reversed, and it will be Murray at point guard. Gary Harris will get the nod at the two, while Wilson Chandler, Will Barton and Nikola Jokic round out the starting five in the absence of Paul Millsap (wrist).

Updating a previous item, Jamal Murray will start against the Rockets on Wednesday. Sometimes trusting the lineup sheet or the game notes can be risky. Either way, Murray should be fine and get plenty of shots no matter who he plays next to.

Murray will shift to the bench Wednesday against Houston, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports. The reason for the decision is unclear, but it could be an effort by coach Mike Malone to help slow down the Rockets' backcourt of James Harden and Chris Paul. Malone will give Emmanuel Mudiay, a superior defender to Murray, his first start of the season, despite the fact that Murray has notched double-figures in scoring in five straight games, including a pair of 30-point performances.

Jamal Murray will move to the bench against the Rockets on Wednesday, according to the lineup sheet. Murray has been the Nuggets' leading scorer in the last 12 games, so moving him to the bench will likely help the second unit scoring now that Will Barton is starting. This may not stick because the move likely has a little to do with the matchup. Either way, Murray should be fine and still get minutes in the 20s.

Jamal Murray hit 6-of-10 shots, a 3-pointer and went 5-of-5 from the line on his way to 18 points, two rebounds, one assist and just one turnover in 24 minutes of Monday's win over the Kings. Not a monster line, but not a bad one, either. Murray's minutes were limited by foul trouble tonight, but it was nice to see him hit some shots. He's starting to show up on some waiver wires courtesy of frustrated owners and there's still a chance that he'll get hot and start tearing it up at some point in the near future. He's a luxury stash at this point, but we'd recommend finding a spot for him if you can.

Jamal Murray was quiet during Sunday's loss to the Lakers, scoring 10 points on 2-of-11 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs, with four rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes. Murray missed all of his 3-point attempts tonight, but he added two steals and one block. There's nothing to worry about here -- Murray had scored 30+ points in two of his previous three games, and he's always one game away from an explosive performance.

Murray scored 31 points (13-18 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding four assists and two rebounds in 34 minutes during Friday's 146-114 win over the Pelicans. The 20-year-old led the way for Denver as they set a new NBA season high for points in a regulation game, while the the last time the Nuggets scored more points than this in franchise history, it came in a clash against the SuperSonics (!). Murray's now topped 30 points in two of his last three games, and while his production is likely to remain somewhat inconsistent going forward, he appears to be settling into his new role as the team's primary scoring option.

Jamal Murray was on fire again during a 146-114 win over the Pelicans on Friday, making 13-of-18 from the field for 31 points with two rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes. It was easily his most aggressive game this year with a career-high 10 two-point makes, and he was only 3-of-7 from deep. The Nuggets continue to go as Murray goes with his 62.2 TS% in wins and just 45.7 TS% in losses, so not surprisingly they won by 32 here. After he couldn't make open treys in October with his 18.2 percent from deep, Murray is now up to a November offensive line of 16.3 points and 2.0 treys per game on 52.7 percent from the field, 40.0 percent from deep and 84.2 percent from the line. He does need to up his steals and he won't help in dimes, but Murray's fantasy owners have to feel a heck of a lot better these days.

Murray scored 18 points (7-19 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding five rebounds and a steal in 39 minutes during Monday's 99-82 loss to the Train Blazers. He also committed a season-high six turnovers, and a 0:6 AST:TO ratio isn't the kind of thing that will keep him in the starting point guard role if Murray continues to struggle with his handle. The Nuggets will be patient with the 20-year-old, however, and Emmanuel Mudiay isn't making a strong push off the bench to supplant him, so Murray's job seems safe for now.
