Jamal Murray scored 15 points on 7-of-14 shooting with six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in Monday’s blowout loss to the Mavs.
Murray is already better than Emmanuel Mudiay and he’s at least a low-level stash, but there are questions about his stat set and he needs to get more than 25 mpg to be a standard league guy. The Nuggets are going with a point guard by committee including these two and Jameer Nelson (two points, two assists, 1-of-8 FGs, 17 minutes), so Murray has some challenges to get there. Nelson can be dropped in 12- and even 14-team formats.
