Jamal Murrays Triple-Double Helps Nuggets Beat Miami Heat in Game 2
Murray, the Denver Nuggets star guard, is often overshadowed by his teammate Nikola Jokic, but he has proved his value in the N.B.A. finals against the Miami Heat.
Some N.B.A. players treat their postgame interview sessions like fashion moments. They wear styled couture outfits, bold graphic shirts or lively prints anything to stand out.
But on Wednesday night, Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray walked into the interview room after winning Game 3 of the N.B.A. finals wearing an unassuming white T-shirt and baggy gray sweatpants. A few glints here and there a glittering bracelet and large stud earrings added a little sparkle.
Murrays attire represented an ever-present dichotomy in his public persona. There are ways in which he seems unassuming, perhaps because he is often overshadowed by his teammate Nikola Jokic. But when you really pay attention, particularly throughout this years playoffs, his play sparkles through those perceptions.
Jamal, hes a guy that thrives, lives and excels in the moment, Nuggets Coach Michael Malone said. Never afraid of it. You cant say that for a lot of players.
