Murray had just six points (2-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), and eight rebounds in 18 minutes during Tuesday's 99-91 loss to Golden State. Murray had a disappointing end to his season, seeing just 18 minutes of playing time Tuesday. Poor performance aside, Murray has had a breakout season after usurping Tony Parker as the starter early on in the piece. His offensive game is a working progress but he has established himself as an elite rebounder from the point guard position with the ability to rack up a number of defensive stats.
Murray went for nine points (3-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, two rebounds and one steal across 16 minutes during San Antonio's 110-97 loss to the Warriors in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. Murray's contributions were improved over those of Game 2, but he still saw well under 20 minutes for the second consecutive contest. The second-year guard was efficient relative to playing time, but with the cap on his playing time over the first three games of the series, it's difficult to trust him as anything more than a deep DFS tournament play heading into Sunday's Game 4.
Murray posted just four points (2-4 FG), two rebounds and two steals across 13 minutes during San Antonio's 116-101 loss to the Warriors in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. Murray saw the fewest minutes of any member of the starting five by far, leading to his second straight single-digit scoring tally to open the series. The second-year point guard had a solid season while surprisingly drawing 48 starts, but he's been rendered a non-factor for the first two games versus the Warriors. With the Spurs now in a 2-0 hole, Murray's trademark across-the-stat-sheet contributions would presumably come in handy in San Antonio's efforts to secure a Game 3 victory, although how much of an opportunity he'll have to be a factor remains to be seen.
Murray supplied 23 points (7-12 FG, 9-13 FT), 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block across 37 minutes in Wednesday's 122-112 overtime loss to the Lakers. Murray was a rather surprising offensive contributor, generating a season-high scoring total. Moreover, he continued his excellent work on the boards, posting his best rebound haul since March 21. A career-high number of visits to the charity stripe certainly helped round out his final line and allowed Murray to produced his second double-digit scoring effort over the first three games of April.
Murray contributed six points (2-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds and four steals across 25 minutes in Tuesday's 113-110 loss to the Clippers. Murray's offensive role was limited, but he once again flashed elite defense by recording multiple steals for the fourth time in the last six games. The second-year guard has been in a multi-game slump with his shot, however, having posted a sub-40-percent success rate in four of the last six contests. The 21-year-old continues to offer above-average rebound numbers for a point guard, as he's now ripping them down at a clip of 5.6 per game on the season.
