With the breakout season of Derrick White, we almost forgot Dejounte Murray. After that ACL tear, Murray cleared to play full-contact basketball. He is the real one who will take the crown of a point guard from Parker. It’s the best thing the franchise doing for a bright future.
Before White huge playoff run over the Nuggets. Murray had his share in the past playoff success with the Spurs. He is the starting point guard in Game Six of the West semifinals. To close out the series against the Rockets. Murray had 11 points, 10 boards, 5 assists, 2 steals, and a block with only one turnover in 24 minutes. The Spurs win by 36 points and the point guard is +33 when he is on the court.
In-Game Four of 2018 playoffs against the Warriors. Murray hits three out of four three-point shots and helps the Spurs win.
Murray who had 48 starts on his second season had seven double-doubles. In a win over the Raptors, he scored 16 points and 14 rebounds and 6 assists. In 81 games he had 13 double figures in rebounds. His best games against the Cavaliers and James. A career-high in points 19, 10 boards, 3 assists, and another career-high 7 steals and a win.
Dejounte just starting to be the Spurs future and he will never stop to be great.
