Jamal Murray scored nine points in a start against the Warriors on Saturday, adding three rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 20 minutes.
He's said he's more explosive and you could see it more on the defensive end. Murray also had a gorgeous step-back trey in this game, which is a big reason why he'll fit in so nicely on this offense (video in link below). After the Murray starting group put up an absurd 122.6 offensive rating after the break last year, he should still be able to fend off a hot Emmanuel Mudiay. On Monday, Murray is likely coming off the bench, but he is still the heavy favorite to start in what could be a breakout season.
