Ahead of the NBA Saturdays game between the Denver Nuggets and Sacramento Kings this weekend, Nuggets’ star Jamal Murray spoke about his teammate Gary Harris.

On Gary Harris

Jamal: “He’s done a great job. An amazing job. Every star player that comes in here he’s done a great job of taking away of what they do best. We’re not joking around with first team (all-defense), he’s been showing it. Not just one game, not just two games but all season long.”

On Gary Harris ever playing defense on him

Jamal: “He guarded me once in the scrimmage we had in training camp and I couldn’t even get open, I couldn’t even get the ball. I watched Gary’s highlights on defense, I watched how he moved his feet, passing angles he takes. It’s definitely someone I can learn from. He’s done a great job, not just this season but ever since I’ve been here.”
