Thing I’m surprised by: How did Dejounte Murray, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, and Anthony Edwards all get more player votes for All-Star starter than Donovan Mitchell? Mitchell only got one more vote than Desmond Bane! pic.twitter.com/Smt20ySK2i1:13 AM

Dejounte Murray on Spurs giving Grizzlies extra possessions:
“I kept trying to preach to everybody when I was in the game or out of the game, we are getting the stops, it’s just that we aren’t securing the basketball. It made it tough for us.” – 11:43 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
“Me and DeMar talk everyday. That’s my brother, that’s my family. Nothing changed, just the teams.” – Dejounte Murray on staying close with DeMar DeRozan, even after DeRozan went to another team. – 11:21 PM

Dejounte Murray has tied David Robinson for the most triple-doubles in Spurs franchise history (14).
He has 10 triple-doubles this season, doubling the previous Spurs record (Robinson with 5). pic.twitter.com/31QHCUkMdE11:04 PM

Last 5 minutes. Tie game. Dejounte Murray is picking Ja Morant up at halfcourt. Ja is one of the league’s best clutch scorers. Murray is one of the NBA’s most disruptive defenders. Here we go.🍿 – 10:45 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
David Robinson isn’t sitting in his usual seat, but I’m sure he’s happy for Dejounte Murray.
They now share the franchise record for career triple-doubles with 14 after Murray notched his 10th of the season. – 10:41 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
Dejounte Murray is one rebound from equaling David Robinson’s franchise mark of 14 triple-doubles.
He hasn’t shot it well (2 of 11) and Spurs are down five in the fourth quarter, but he is grinding. – 10:30 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
“It’s kind of like a video game for him right now.”
Only one player in the Western Conference is averaging at least 19 points and nine assists: Dejounte Murray. How passing helps makes Murray’s All-Star case. expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a… via @expressnews – 4:39 PM

“He’s definitely setting the tone,” said Coach Pop of Dejounte Murray’s leadership and play on the court. – 10:21 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
Dejounte Murray with 10 assists tonight. His carer high is 15. – 9:45 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
Dejounte Murray could eclipse his career high of 15 assists tonight, depending on how much Pop wants to play him in the 4Q. He’s got 10 to go along with his 19 points. – 9:44 PM
