Was Jamal Murray's last-second shot disrespectful? | Around the Horn

Murray drops career-high 48 points in win over Celtics

Jamal Murray: Celtics Know 'I Was Trying to Get 50'

This wasn't the first time Murray got himself in hot water after letting his emotions get the best of him.

He took some heat for it.

"I really wasn't meaning no disrespect".

The Celtics were led by 31 points from Kyrie Irving, who carved space anywhere he went despite the Nuggets' best attempts. Murray continued his dominance in the game's final frame, torching Boston's defense for 19 points. Murray had a career-high 48 points in the game, and connecting on the last-second attempt would have propelled him over the 50-point plateau. But Irving did not like Murray firing up an uncontested three-pointer at the buzzer, miffed that Murray didn't simply dribble out the clock. Nash had 48 in a May 2005 playoff game. "Last five games I think they're sixth or seventh in 3-point percentage". Irving said after the game, via NBC Sports Boston."I understand if we fouled him, going to the free-throw line".

"Congratulations to him on his 48 points". He did it in a great fashion against us. "You never want to try to disrespect anybody". I just had it in my mind I was going for 50.

With the loss, the Celtics fall to 6-4 on the season while the Nuggets improve to 9-1. "Keep trusting each other and get the job done". He scored eight points on 3-of-5 shooting.

Alyssa Milano , a Hollywood actress lately known for her #MeToo activism, was also forced to evacuate, apparently in a rush. Kim quote tweeted it with a number of prayer emojis before her property was affected.

He had nine and 16 points when the Nuggets split games at Memphis. I think it wasn't disrespect.

The awkward situation with Drew came on top of the team's poor start, All-Star forward Kevin Love undergoing surgery and guard J.R. Smith wanting to be traded. He was just hoping it would happen after Monday.

But it should make them look worse than Murray.

Stevens raved about Nuggets guard Isaiah Thomas, now sidelined as he rehabs from hip surgery.

Thomas isn't expected back until possibly next month, but he's already having an influence on the Nuggets - with his voice. I know half the team over there, so no hard feelings. "It was definitely unprofessional", said Morris. "He's a young player".
