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.
Murray posted 24 points (8-14 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six assists, and two rebounds in 33 minutes during Saturday's 117-103 Game 4 win over the Spurs.
Murray bounced back after delivering a dud in Thursday's Game 3 defeat, in which he had nearly as many turnovers (four) as points (six). Murray has been fairly inconsistent all year, but this is his second 24-point performance through four playoff games. With the series tied at two games apiece, the 22-year-old guard will likely need to provide another impressive showing if the Nuggets hope to avoid an elimination game on the road.
Murray managed 24 points (8-17 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), four assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 114-105 Game 2 win over the Spurs.
Murray shook off a shaky showing in Saturday's series opener to provide a solid scoring effort in this one. The 22-year-old guard remains a somewhat streaky contributor overall, but his 21-point fourth quarter explosion helped his team overcome a fairly sizable deficit to even the series at one game apiece.
Murray totaled 17 points (8-24 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six steals, and two rebounds in 34 minutes during Saturday's 101-96 loss to the Spurs.
Murray couldn't get anything going on the offensive end Saturday but managed to salvage his line with an impressive six steals. The Nuggets are certainly not going to be happy with their effort and the fact they only lost by five points is encouraging. Murray will need to turn things around in a hurry, much like his teammates, if they are to level the series Tuesday.
Murray totaled 17 points (6-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists, and one block in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 99-95 victory over the Timberwolves.
Murray was within sight of a triple-double Wednesday, helping the Nuggets lock up the second seed in the West. On the whole, Murray has been somewhat underwhelming this season and likely underperformed when compared to his ADP. That being said, he is going to be a key piece of the Nuggets offense as they look to move forth in the playoffs, starting with a tough matchup against the Spurs on Saturday.
Murray (rest) will play in Tuesday's game against the Jazz, Katy Winge of Altitude TV reports.
Murray got the night off along with Paul Millsap and Nikola Jokic on Sunday, but now all three will be back in action for the final two games. With Murray back in the starting lineup, Monte Morris will return to playing the role of backup point guard.
Murray will sit out Sunday's game for rest against the Trail Blazers.
Coach Michael Malone will opt to give Murray the day off to stay fresh for the upcoming playoffs. In Murray's place, Monte Morris should see extra run and is a strong candidate to draw the start at point guard.
Murray tallied 23 points (7-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 7-7 FT), six assists, four rebounds and one steal across 36 minutes in the Nuggets' 119-110 win over the Trail Blazers on Friday.
Murray turned in a well-balanced offensive performance, one supplemented nicely with another perfect showing from the free-throw line. The third-year guard continues to be one of the driving forces of the Nuggets offense as the season winds down, and Friday's point tally served as his fourth of at least 20 points in the last seven games.
Murray registered 14 points (6-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 assists, six rebounds, one steal and one block across 30 minutes in the Nuggets' 113-85 win over the Spurs on Wednesday.
Murray enjoyed an excellent all-around performance, posting his first double-double since Feb. 6. The 2016 first-round pick finished March with a hot hand from the field, shooting between 50.0 and 63.2 percent over the last four contests of the month. He's been less efficient in the first two games of April while shooting 42.9 percent in each, but he'll naturally remain a pivotal component of the offense over the final four games as the Nuggets push to improve playoff positioning.
Murray finished with 17 points (6-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five steals, four rebounds, and three assists in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 116-102 loss to the Warriors.
Murray battled through his ankle injury to finish with a team-high 17 points, adding five steals, matching his season-high in that category. The scoreline certainly flatters the Nuggets who were completely outclassed. They will need to regroup quickly as they return home to host the Spurs on Wednesday. This loss means the first seed could now be out of reach, however, they are not safe in the second seed either. Owners should monitor the injury report leading into Wednesday in case the injury flares up overnight.
