Jamal Murray explodes for 40 points in remarkable series comebackSeptember 15, 2020 | 11:10 PM
Jamal Murray delivered 40 points (15-26 FG, 6-13 3PT, 4-4 FT), four boards, five assists, one steal, and five turnovers in Tuesday's series win against the Clippers.
Writer's Analysis: For the majority of the series, Murray was ice-cold from the field and struggled to find his rhythm. Of course, he saved his best game for the series finale. DFS owners undoubtedly would have liked to see more consistency from Murray, but they'll gladly take tonight's performance, especially against the Clippers' gritty defense. The good news is that the Lakers don't quite possess the same amount of elite defenders, meaning that Murray should average superior shooting numbers next round. But attempting to defeat LeBron James and Anthony Davis is another thing.
