Murray posted 18 points (7-16 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block in 33 minutes Tuesday in the Nuggets' 125-121 loss to the Hawks.
Though he failed to connect from three-point range for just the second time all season, Murray continued to shine offensively. Over the past five games, Murray is averaging 19.6 points (on 47 percent shooting from the field), 5.4 assists, 4.6 rebounds, 1.4 triples and 1.2 steals in 34.0 minutes.
Murray briefly left Sunday's game against the Timberwolves with left foot soreness but returned during the third quarter, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.
Murry went to the locker room early in the second half, but he's now retaken the court after a trip to the locker room, per Singer.
Murray had 22 points (10-18 FG, 1-3 3PT, 1-1 FT), 11 assists, six rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 37 minutes during Friday's 100-97 win against the Sixers.
Murray dished out a season-high mark in assists, and he has scored at least 20 points in each of his last three starts as well. Through eight games this season, Murray is averaging career-high figures in points (19.3), rebounds (5.0) and field-goal percentage (46.7) per game.
Murray had 21 points (9-15 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FG), five boards, four assists and two steals in 33 minutes of a 109-89 win against the Miami Heat on Tuesday.
Murray lead his team in scoring for the second consecutive game, playing a team-high 33 minutes as the Nuggets cruised to their fifth win of the season. Denver's sizable lead enabled the team to rest its stars in the contest, yet that didn't stop Murray from leading his team in scoring. Denver next plays Philadelphia on Friday.
Murray amassed 22 points (7-15 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 32 minutes during Saturday's 91-87 victory over Orlando.
Murray had a solid night Saturday, leading the Nuggets with 22 points including a pair of triples. He is yet to blow up this season and currently ranks as the 78th best player in 9-category leagues. Given the talent around him, Murray's value is somewhat capped. He will likely be better than his current ranking suggests, although the top-50 would appear to be a realistic expectation.
Murray had 16 points (7-13 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and one assist in a 109-106 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday.
Murray scored in double-digits for the fourth time this season, but his assists were down to a season-low one on the year as his distribution continues to lag from seasons past. He also went ice cold from outside, failing to make a shot from outside the arc in the game. Murray will have a quick turnaround as the Nuggets will play at the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday.
Murray scored 27 points (8-19 FG, 2-5 3PT, 9-11 FT) to go along with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block during Denver's 108-107 win over Phoenix this Friday.
Murray didn't distribute the ball much this around, although that was mostly due to Nikola Jokic's dominant ball-handling duties that saw him deliver 12 assists. Murray looked far more efficient in comparison to his first outing this season, and he will try to build on this performance next Monday at Sacramento.
Murray poured in nine points (4-7 FG, 1-3 FT) and added two rebounds, two assists and one block across 24 minutes during the Nuggets' 111-91 preseason win over the Clippers on Thursday.
Murray boosted his shooting percentage significantly Thursday after draining just three of his 10 attempts in the preseason opener versus the Trail Blazers on Tuesday. The 2016 first-round pick upped his scoring, rebounding and assist numbers for the second consecutive year last season, but he'll look to reverse the dip in shooting percentage he experienced (43.7 percent, compared to 45.1 percent in 2017-18).
Murray won't play for Team Canada in the upcoming 2019 FIBA World Cup after recently sustaining a sprained ankle, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Murray initially intended to join a talented Canadian roster, but he suffered the injury during a training session and has decided to hold himself out on what looks to be a mostly precautionary basis. It's a disappointing development for both Murray and Team Canada, but with two-plus months before the start of the NBA season, the point guard should be fully healthy for the Nuggets by the time camp rolls around.
Murray agreed to a five-year, $170 million contract with the Nuggets on Sunday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Murray was impressive throughout the 2018-2019 campaign, scoring 18.2 points while dishing out 4.8 assists over 75 games. These career-high numbers have earned him a huge payday, and he figures to be in line to produce at a similar clip heading into the upcoming season.
Murray ended with 17 points (4-18 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 9-9 FT), six rebounds, and five assists in 37 minutes during Sunday's 100-96 loss to Portland.
Murray could not get anything to fall Sunday, hitting just 4-of-18 from the field on his way to 17 points. The Nuggets were unceremoniously bundled out of the playoffs after establishing an early lead. While the season can certainly be viewed as a success from a team perspective, Murray will likely view his performance Sunday as a key factor in them not advancing to the Western Conference Finals. In fact, Murray's struggles throughout the series typically reflected whether they won or lost. He is one of the more talented scorers in the league but will be looking for more consistency heading into next season and beyond.
Murray finished with 24 points (7-20 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists and one steal across 46 minutes during the Nuggets' 119-108 loss to the Trail Blazers in Game 6 of their Western Conference semifinal-round playoff series Thursday.
Murray was the workhorse of the starting five Thursday, logging a game-high number of minutes and checking in behind only Nikola Jokic in scoring and rebounds for the Nuggets on the night. The 22-year-old has eclipsed the 20-point mark in four of the first six games of the series, even though his shot hasn't exactly been at its sharpest from contest to contest. Murray's 35.0 percent success rate Thursday was his second sub-40.0 percent effort against Portland, and he'll look to up his efficiency significantly in Sunday's crucial Game 7.
Murray collected 18 points (7-16 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), nine assists, five rebounds and one block across 34 minutes during the Nuggets' 124-98 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 5 of their Western Conference semifinal-round playoff series Tuesday.
Murray was a highly effective third wheel to Nikola Jokic and Paul Millsap, checking in behind both in scoring. The third-year guard was coming off back-to-back 34-point efforts in Games 3 and 4, but he played more of a facilitator in Tuesday's contest. He'll look to help the Nuggets vault into the conference finals in Thursday's Game 6.
Murray paced the Nuggets with 34 points (10-20 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 11-11 FT) and added five rebounds and four assists in 38 minutes Sunday in the team's 116-112 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 4.
For the second straight contest, Murray poured in exactly 34 points, but he was much more efficient in the winning effort after converting 14 of 32 attempts from the field in the quadruple-overtime loss in Game 3. Throughout the series, however, Murray has been consistently unshakable at the free-throw line. Sunday's perfect showing leaves him at 18-for-18 in four games.
Murray (thigh) totaled 34 points (14-32 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, five assists and one steal across 55 minutes during the Nuggets' 140-137 quadruple-overtime loss to the Trail Blazers in Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal-round series Friday.
Murray paced the Nuggets in shot attempts and scoring during the instant classic, with his tally serving as a playoff-high figure. The third-year guard fell just one shot attempt short of matching his combined total in that category from the first two games of the series. Murray is now averaging an impressive 24.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 1.3 steals over the first three contests against Portland and will look to help Denver bounce back in Sunday's Game 4.
Murray aggravated a thigh injury during Wednesday's Game 2 loss to the Trail Blazers and will undergo treatment over the next 48 hours, Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.com reports.
Murray bruised his right thigh during the first round, and things flared up Wednesday after he ran into a screen. The goal for Murray ahead of Friday's Game 3 matchup is to get his thigh to "loosen up as much as possible." It seems likely he'll play this weekend, but the situation is worth monitoring as the Nuggets head to Portland.
Murray ended with 23 points (8-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight assists, and two steals in 34 minutes during Monday's 121-113 victory over the Trail Blazers.
Murray had an efficient night Monday, shooting 8-of-15 from the field on his way to 23 points. The pick-and-roll with Nikola Jokic was spectacular with both players coming off with plenty of open looks. Murray is certainly going to be a key factor moving forward for the Nuggets and will need to remain focused if they are to propel themselves into the Western Conference finals.
Murray ended with 23 points (9-19 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds, and four assists in 32 minutes during Saturday's 90-86 victory over the Spurs.
Murray came on late for the Nuggets who managed to hold off a fast finishing Spurs team, advancing to the second round of the playoffs where they will face the Trail Blazers. Despite dropping a game-high 23 points, Murray appears to have lost some confidence in his perimeter game and will need to turn things around heading into what will be a more offensive based matchup moving forward. Outside of Murray and Nikola Jokic, the Nuggets have struggled to find regular scoring and so will need Murray to be at his best come Monday.
Murray totaled 16 points (7-18 FG, six assists, and three rebounds in 35 minutes during Thursday's 120-103 loss to the Spurs.
Murray was solid enough in Thursday's loss but will need to improve drastically if the Nuggets are to emerge victorious Saturday. He has been far from consistent throughout the round one series and fans will be hoping he turns it up for the home crowd. Breaking down his numbers from the series thus far, in the games Murray shoots at least 47 percent, the Nuggets win. He has also scored at least 23 points in all three victories and so the recipe seems fairly clear cut.
Murray supplied 23 points (9-16 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven assists, four rebounds, two steals, and one block in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 108-90 Game 5 win over the Spurs.
Murray was absolutely remarkable, dominating the opposition while helping his team put the game out of reach early enough that he was able to grab some extra rest down the stretch. Murray has now scored at least 23 points in three of the last four games, and he posted playoff career highs in rebounding, assists, and made threes in this one as well. He'll look to lead his team to the second round during Thursday's Game 6.
