NBA: Denver Nuggets at Charlotte Hornets Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

In his fourth season playing in the NBA, Jamal Murray continues to blossom for the Denver Nuggets.

Increasing his points per game each season, Murray has cemented himself as a go-to scorer for the current third-seed Nuggets. On Thursday evening, Murray swished a game-winning shot over Charlotte Hornets defender Cody Martin. The former Wildcat put together 18 points and six assists in the winning effort to go along with his clutch performance. While Denver isn’t considered one of the leading contenders in the Western Conference, they are indeed atop the current standings in large part due to the contributions of Murray himself.
