Nuggets guard Jamal Murray has been lighting it up in the bubble during the NBA playoffs, and now we know why.
It’s been said that the courts in the Orlando bubble are “shooters gyms,” given that they’re smaller, and more compact. And, most importantly, there are no fans in the stands, so it’s a bit easier for players to focus, without distractions to worry about.
But for Murray, it may be more about what he has waiting for him off the court.
He’s scored 50, 42 and 50 points in the last three games, and is the main reason the Nuggets fought back from a 3-1 deficit against the Jazz to force a winner-take-all Game 7 on Tuesday night.
And he’s really winning off the court as well, with his girlfriend, Harper Hempel, helping serve as motivation for him during this amazing run, like she recently did. Check out some photos of Hempel (via Instagram).
Life is pretty good for Murray right now; that’s for sure.
