Jamal Murray hit just 2-of-8 shots for six points in Tuesday’s loss to the Mavericks.
Murray did have a block but this is what we worried about with the integration of Paul Millsap throwing this team off. Michael Malone was very smart to bench both the ineffective Murray and also a morose Nikola Jokic (four points, nine boards, five assists, two steals, one block) in the fourth quarter, though the Denver media has done a bang-up job setting up a narrative to go after the coach. It’s almost as if he took a job for a team that employed the guy that got him fired in Sacramento.
