Jamal Murray highlights vs. Mexico; Emerging as top-5 pick in 2016 NBA Draft

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

As the Pan-American Games now head into the semifinal round, Jamal Murray continues to impress and help Canada keep winning.

On Thursday against Mexico, Murray scored 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting from the field to go with five rebounds, two assists, two steals and five turnovers in 25 minutes in Canada's 96-76 win.

There's also this tidbit from Michael Grange of Sports Net Canada, who is hearing Murray could be a top-five pick in next year's NBA draft:

With incoming Kentucky basketball freshman Skal Labissiere already viewed as a consensus top-five selection, it's already looking like 2016 will be a productive year for the Wildcats in the draft. Let's hope it comes after a memorable 2015-16 season for the Cats.
