Jamal Murray gets ejected for hitting Tim’s hard-a-ways

Jamal Murray, Tim Hardaway Jr., Nuggets

Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray was ejected on Monday against the Dallas Mavericks after hitting Tim Hardaway Jr. in the groin area late in the third quarter.

It remains unclear if it was an accident or retaliation by the usually composed Murray. The Mavericks coaching staff, however, reacted adamantly after seeing the ballsy play.

Below is another angle of the incident. Did Murray accidentally collide with Hardaway’s crotch on his way up? Or was the whole thing deviously orchestrated by the Nuggets guard?

The referees were firm in their decision that there was malice behind Murray’s nutty antics. He got ejected after being slapped with a Flagrant 2 foul. He left the game with 16 points, three rebounds, and two assists in 25 minutes of action. Lucky for him, the Nuggets came away with the victory 117-113.

Michael Porter Jr. picked up the scoring slack in Murray’s early exit with 30 points on top of eight rebounds, while Nikola Jokic chipped in 20 markers, 10 boards, and four assists.

Hardaway, who finished with 19 points, seven rebounds, and possibly two painful sacks, spoke about the incident after the game. He doesn’t seem too bothered about it. What disappointed him was that they failed to lock in the victory.

Murray quickly trended on Twitter after his foul on Hardaway.

Some likened him to WWE legend Ric Flair and his dirty tactics.

Sports analyst David Jones, meanwhile, imagined how NBA teams would now prepare for the Nuggets after Murray’s low blow.

One fan recalled the last time Jamal Murray trended in the most subtle but hilarious way possible.

It’s funny because it’s true.
