Murray missed all of last season rehabbing the torn ACL he suffered in the preseason. After signing a rookie-scale extension with the Spurs before the 2019-20 campaign started, Murray was eager to show everyone he deserved the money despite coming off a serious injury.
Coming into Friday’s matchup with the Jazz, Murray was averaging 10.4 points, 5.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists for the Spurs in 24.6 minutes per game.
The Spurs have a lot of work to do if they want to make the playoffs for the 23rd straight season.
