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 posted 17 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-10 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two steals in 29 minutes during Saturday's 116-105 win over the Trail Blazers.
The rookie has dealt with injuries and consistency issues all season but it appears that he might be coming along at the right time. He hasn't put two decent games like this together since before the All-Star break, and he'll need to stay that consistent if the Spurs have any hope of advancing. He should be at full speed for at least one more game, but a victory over the Kings on Monday would likely lead to a minutes cap in preparation for the playoffs.
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 as well. 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.
