With under five ticks left in the quarter, the Kentucky alum was picked up by Anthony Davis following a switch. Realizing he had the speed advantage over AD, Murray razzled and dazzled before launching a 3-pointer at the top of the key over the outstretched hands of the Lakers big man.
That was Jamal Murray’s first 3-pointer of the game and he had nine points in the opening quarter. He also got his Nuggets teammates involved as he racked up four dimes in the quarter.
