Jamal Murray 2017-2018 Season Outlook

Recommended Posts

So I have this rule for my roto team. If a player sucks he sits on my bench until I see 3 good games in a row before inserting him back into the starting lineup....

 

FML.

20 years old, the part of his game is missing?? Consistency. Hopefully, he gets better with this as the season goes on.

I think he'll come good. I know he's got a year under his belt but remember his horrible start last year?

Clearly Malone believes in him so I don't think we'll see those random 20 minute games occur too often anymore

He’s got some play with me since it seems like the Denver staff think he is the future, but my gut reaction last night was to drop him for Donovan Mitchell...

This talk about Malone being a bad coach was kind of ridiculous, right? Sucks for us Murray owners, but they were in a close game, Murray was terrible and he went to guys that were playing well and got a win. Just another example of what good coaches do.

denver has a lot of talent and malone's rotations have been a little bit better this year. defense looks more engaged as well, albeit small sample size. that being said, his refusal to run the entire offence through jokic  and continually using the jokic/plumlee still doesn't make much sense

They're Top 10 in offensive efficiency and Jokic is leading the team in assists and points. They could use him a little more though, and Plumlee shouldn't ever be playing with Jokic. Calling for Malone's head as being some terrible coach just seemed like ignorance from other posters though imo. He's a pretty solid coach.

Coach Mike Malone said he'd like for Jamal Murray to close games, but he will go with the best player that gives his team the best chance to win.
Malone said that Murray had a tough game Friday on both ends of the floor, so that's why Murray wasn't out there in the fourth. It was actually Will Barton out there to finish the game after Emmanuel Mudiay had a rough five minutes. Malone also really wants Murray to get downhill and isn't worried about his shooting, and he's actually defended well this season. Whatever the case, Murray's owners should stick with him after his strong three-game run before the Friday dud.

So far he hurts me more than he helps. It's hard to roster a streaky shooter like this. Even if he's hot, he contributes only pts and 3's, some ast. When he's not, he gets me nothing.

What did we get ourselves in to? Most difficult player I've ever had to roster. At least he nabbed two steals tonight? Sheesh.

I thought I won My League picking him up after My League mate dropped him to start the month, Reading posts Here and listening to Various experts.

 

Why is he good can anyone remind me? Will he even average more than 3 assists? If its just scoring and a couple of 3s at best im dropping him

Watched the game last night. Murray is at his best when he’s aggressive and he was so passive last night it was painful. He’s the starting pg so he has to take control of the team. Murray essentially gave the ball yo to Jokic or Milsap all night and just stood in the corner.

They are at their best when Jokic and Millsap handle playmaking duties. Jamal's playmaking descisions have been pretty horrible so far, but he excels at scoring off of cuts and and spot up shooting. It's on him for not putting himself in position to do those things, as he has had his best games when he does.

Hopefully Malone can work out the offense to use Murray better. Running the offense from Jokic and Millsap sounds like the best idea.

 

The good thing is that Mudiaye with his high usage rate doesn't really fit in the starting lineup.

Pretty close to cutting the cord, guy doesn’t even shot anymore and besides scoring Murray doesn’t do much.

I think this guy is in the dog house of his coach and the fantasy owners.

 

Not really, Mudiay is just out playing him badly atm.
