There was a time when Jamal Murray (26, Canada), who announced a splendid revival in the 2022-23 season, could not picture the future at the Denver Nuggets (hereafter Denver).
Denver coach Mike Malone talked about the head at a press conference after winning Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals 119-108, 11 points on the 21st (Korean time).
According to manager Malone, after injuring his ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) against the Golden State Warriors in April 2021 (later out for the 21-22 season), Murray said with tears in his eyes, “Are you going to trade me? I’m badly damaged,” he asked manager Malone. At the time, director Malone replied that he showed his affection for his hair with just two words, “You’re ours”.
“When I heard that, I couldn’t believe it,” Malone told reporters. “Denver has helped get his head back and he’s going to be a better player.”
“All Hair has done in this playoff is to remind us of the man we drafted seven years ago and who shone on the biggest stage,” added Malone of his tribute to his hair.
After going through a 555-day recovery period starting with the 22-23 season, the head returned to the ‘bubble season’ we know.메이저놀이터
Murray has made a successful comeback this season averaging 20 points, 4 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game. He is averaging 27.9 points, 5.6 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 1.2 steals per game in the playoffs.
Best of all, Murray poured in 37 points in Game 3 against the Lakers, becoming only the fourth player in the past 25 years to score 30 or more points in three straight playoff games.
On the other hand, on the way back to the locker room after the game, Murray expressed his victory with one word, “Five more times.”
