Nuggets and today
Murray has completely transformed in this year’s playoffs. In the first round, he faced Mitchell by 50+. In the second round, he scored 40 points to send away the favorite Clippers. In the game against the Lakers, Murray scored in a critical moment Two ultra-long three pointers withstood the Lakers' reversal.
Murray came up today with a hot touch. He made a retreat shot shortly after the start of the game. After that, he used his old skills to make jump shots and even difficult drifting backwards. The bottom line break through the small toss is more relaxed and freehand. Howard is not afraid at all, with a steady pace of withdrawal jumpers, and pushing the fast break makes the Lakers lose sight of one another.
Murray didn't just play by himself. After he broke through, he sent Harris a three-point assist, and the slamming pass to Plumley made people applaud. With his 12-point performance in a single quarter, the Nuggets bit the score.
Murray restrained in the second quarter, but his magical pull rod layup in the middle was even more impressive: Murray took off with the ball in his left hand, but in order to avoid LeBron's blockade, he was in the air. Changed to the right hand basket, reminiscent of that year
The Lakers strengthened their defense against Murray in the second half. He didn't score the first two three-pointers, and one of them was still a three-pointer. However, Murray assisted Clegg to hit a three-pointer, and he also made two free throws for fouls, and was still able to break through and make a layup. On the final attack of the third quarter, Murray rushed in to attract the flanking attack, and then passed the outside porter for a three-pointer to help the team continue to narrow the gap.
Murray was still hot in the final quarter. In a fast break, he changed hands from behind to make a layup and scored an easy layup. Then he scored a difficult backward jumper in front of the thick eyebrows, and then hit the fairy throw under Rondo's defense. Cast, withstood the Lakers' offensive.
After failing to challenge LeBron twice, Murray continued to chase points through fouls, but the team couldn't help the Lakers. Murray's final three-pointer also ended in iron, and finally lost regretfully.
