Jamal Murray of the Denver Nuggets has gotten the attention of just about every NBA fan lately.
His performances in the playoffs have been phenomenal and have helped his team reach its first Finals.
Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors is just one of the many people wowed by what Murray is doing.
“The growth of Jamal Murray in these playoffs has actually been… as much of a key to Denver’s dominance in the playoffs as Joker has been,” Green said on his podcast.

Green admitted that Murray had a series of up-and-down games earlier in the postseason, not performing as well as he’d like.
But he has recently sprung to life in a huge way and has made the Nuggets even more impressive and difficult to defeat.
Nikola Jokic has naturally been the most pressing issue for teams playing against Denver.
From the Timberwolves to the Suns to the Lakers and now the Heat, every team has done what it can to slow him down.
Murray has allowed Denver to keep scoring in some big ways.
He has played expertly alongside Jokic as well and has made defending the Nuggets seemingly impossible at times.
This is key to them winning games.
Now the Heat have more to worry about than just Jokic and his scoring and passing abilities.
They also have to keep an eye on Murray because he can get hot from all over the floor and create assists as well.
The duo of Jokic and Murray has become one of the best in the league.
Because of their hard work, they are now getting closer to winning their first Finals.NEXT: Jamal Murray Has Passed Steph Curry In Finals History
