Jamal Murray and Canada are now just one win away from a gold medal in the 2015 Pan-American Games.

With Canada trailing by six entering the fourth quarter of their semifinal game against the U.S., Murray erupted for 22 points, all of which coming in the fourth quarter or OT, to lead Canada to a thrilling 111-108 win.

Here are Murray's highlights from the game, courtesy of UK Basketball Live:

Against some of the world's best players from North, South and Central America, Murray has averaged 17.0 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists while shooting 51.0 percent from the floor in four wins.

"It means everything to be out here," Murray said after the game on ESPN2. "Playing on the two highest stages (for Canada and Kentucky) at this age is just incredible. To have my great teammates and amazing NBA coaches aside me along the way is a learning experience for me."
