Murray scored 25 points (10-22 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT) along with six rebounds, five assists and a steal over 38 minutes of action in the Nuggets' 113-97 loss to the Mavericks on Wednesday. Playing in the midst of a chaotic news night, Murray hit the 25-point mark for the first time in nearly a month and has been shouldering increased burden during Nikola Jokic's slump. Jokic was solid Wednesday, but Murray still doubled his shot output. The Kentucky product is averaging 18.8 points, 4.8 assists and 3.9 rebounds per game this season.

On a vicious play waived off by an offensive foul, Murray elevated and jammed over D.J. Wilson for a highlight that basketball fans should check out. The energizing effect took hold, with Murray hitting the next four Denver shots, dusting Wesley Matthews in the process. His 21 points and 39 minutes were both team highs.

With his six made threes, Murray came one short of his season high. His shot from distance is inconsistent, but the Nuggets have managed to go 6-0 this season when Murray has hit at least four 3-pointers. In 17 appearances since the turn of the calendar to 2020, he's averaging 21.9 points, 5.1 assists and 3.1 rebounds in 33.6 minutes.
Murray delivered 16 points (5-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight assists, five rebounds, one steal and one block in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 115-98 win over the Pistons. Murray missed 10 games between Jan. 16 and Feb. 2, but he has looked impressive in eight contests following his return -- he has topped the 15-point mark each time while dishing out five or more assists in six of those eight contests. Murray has been a reliable source of scoring for the Nuggets all year, and the team will need him healthy for both the end of the regular season and a potential deep postseason run.
