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

Game Preview Nuggets Look to Extend Winning Streak Against Celtics

Jamal Murray appeared to go for a personal milestone instead of dribbling out the clock against the Boston Celtics.

"The ball deserves to go in the crowd after a bulls- move like that", Irving said, via Jay King of The Athletic. But not everyone was happy with that last three-point bid, taken when the outcome of the game was already determined.

Murray was on his back, his head tilted behind him, as he watched his teammate splash in the 3-pointer, finally giving Denver the lead after a night of climbing against the Celtics. Our defense has to be better, especially against a player like that in the pick-and-roll.

Up by two points with seven minutes remaining Murray scored eight straight points for the Nuggets including two three-pointers.

Though Irving was clearly angered, Murray said that he didn't mean any disrespect to the Celtics with his final shot attempt.

Arizona - No matter which candidate the voters choose, one thing is clear - Arizona is getting its first woman senator. The Democrats look likely to take the House, and the Republicans likely to take the Senate , so this is option one.

After Murray's missed attempt at 50, the ball landed near Irving, who took it and threw it into the crowd out of frustration.

"I really wasn't meaning no disrespect". "It was just, my emotions took over and that's how I get sometimes when I get going".

"I know him personally, so I'm not gonna sit up here and badger him".

To be fair to Irving, he praised Murray's performance, and after the game, veterans on Murray's team gave him a talking to about taking that final shot.

Not the first time Murray has upset his opponent at the end of game. The C's continued to play sluggish out of the break, allowing 34 Denver points in the third quarter.
