Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

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.

Jamal Murray made 7-of-19 from the field for 18 points with five rebounds, one steal and six turnovers in 39 minutes against the Blazers on Monday. He was open for a handful of his triples, but he couldn't knock any of his seven attempts from deep. Murray is playing off the ball more than he was earlier this year, but he continues to get heavy usage as a scorer. This was one of his most inefficient games of the year, but at least Murray has a green light and Emmanuel Mudiay has also really cooled off.

Murray tallied 32 points (12-21 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds and one assist across 32 minutes in Saturday's 125-107 victory over the Magic. Murray was on fire in this game, netting himself a career-high 32 points. He has been wildly inconsistent this season, frustrating owners who took a flier on him in their drafts. His minutes have fluctuated due to this inconsistency, but he still appears to have the starting role locked-up. He will no doubt gain some confidence from this performance, and will get his next chance to light it up when the Nuggets face Portland on Monday night.
