Jamal Murray showcased his elite scoring ability in the NBA season restart. In a recent interview with Asley Nevel, the Denver Nuggets’ superstar talked on Stephen Curry and explained why he is the hardest cover in the NBA.

(via NBC Sports):

“One, because of his shot,” Murray said. “But two, because you don’t know what he’s gonna do. You don’t know if he’s just gonna pull it, you don’t know if he’s just gonna end up going by you, (or) if he’s gonna cross you over six times and then shoot and look away.

“You have absolutely no clue what he’s gonna do.”

Curry is pretty known for his unbelievable shot-creating skills and the ability to score from any place on the court. On the other side, Murray showed incredible improvement in the NBA bubble in that regard, but he will have to showcase that ability in a full-blown season.

Murray averaged 26.5 points, 6.6 assists, and 4.4 rebounds per game in the postseason leading the Denver Nuggets to the Western Conference Finals.
