If you take Murray’s averages from Dec. 1 to the end of the season (60 games), they were All-Star worthy numbers: 17.8 points, 45.9 percent shooting, 41.3 percent from the 3-point line, 90.1 percent from the free throw line, 3.9 rebounds, 3.9 assists per game. Murray had a team-leading plus-minus of plus-9.7 in April. And to think, he began training camp in a battle for the starting point guard spot. He ended it as the unquestioned starter, a player vital to any success the Nuggets were having, and a player the Nuggets view as a core player going forward. “He is a guy that likes to be challenged,” said Nuggets president of basketball operations, Tim Connelly. “I think he is a guy that has a chance to be special.”
Storyline: Nuggets Front Office
Harris, in his 24th appearance with the Nuggets, provided the right spark at the right time in Denver’s 100-96 win against Minnesota. On a night when Paul Millsap and Nikola Jokic combined to shoot 28 percent from the floor, Harris scored a season-high 20 points — including shooting 5-of-9 from behind the arc. None were bigger than his trio to end the third quarter that flipped momentum. “I saw a former (2009) All-Star playing with confidence and the swag he had back then,” Nuggets guard Jamal Murray said. “He was just hooping. Guys were getting open and he was making the most of his opportunities.”
