Jamal Murray propelled the Nuggets past the Jazz by a 119-107 margin on Sunday, forcing a decisive Game 7 with 50 points (17-of-24 FG), nine triples, six assists and five rebounds.
Murray was knocking down shots from every angle, and it did not matter what defender the Jazz threw at him throughout this contest. He was understandably at a loss for words after this stunning performance, and he is looking like a completely different player than the up-and-down guard we saw last year as the Nuggets offense was often grinding through playoff matchups. The offense has quickly transformed from the Nikola Jokic passing symphony to Jamal Murray launching heat from all over the floor, and it will be interesting to see how the Nugget's offense develops in the long run. It will be exciting to see what he pulls off in Game 7 on Tuesday. If it is not already obvious, Murray's fantasy stock is on the rise for next season.
