New, 4 comments

Canada is 2-0 thus far in the Pan-American Games, and Jamal Murray is a big reason why.

Jamal Murray continued to dazzle during the Pan-American Games in Canada's 88-83 win over Argentina Wednesday night.

Murray scored 20 points on 6-of-15 shooting in 27 minutes of action. He made four of seven three-point attempts and all four of his free throws while notching two rebounds, an assist, a blocked shot and three turnovers.

Here are Murray's highlights, via UK Basketball Live:

Before the game, Murray drew some nice praise from one of the greatest Canadians to play basketball in Steve Nash.

"I'm just starting to get to know him," Nash said of Murray, via Sportsnet.ca. "I've watched him quite a bit. He's got a tremendous amount of ability. He's got a very bright future. It's very exciting for our program. But it's also exciting for me as a point guard — to see a young player come through with that much ability is very fun and exciting."
