Jamal Murray had 48 points Monday night with time winding down, when he launched a three-pointer in an effort to crack the 50-point barrier.
It was a “bullshit move,” according to Kyrie Irving.

Murray’s career night led the Denver Nuggets (9-1) past the visiting Boston Celtics 115-107, and admitted that his emotions took over late in the game.
Per the AP:
“My emotion took over as it normally does when I get going like that,” Murray explained.
Murray was feeling it all night, hitting 19 of 30 shots, including five 3s. He had two attempts to reach 50 points in the final seconds, but missed a reverse layup and then that 3 at the buzzer — one that bothered the Celtics with the game already decided.
“What kind of competitor wouldn’t it bother? I was (mad), but we’re not going to make a big thing about it,” said Kyrie Irving, who scored 31 points on 13-of-17 shooting. “But congratulations to him on 48 points. He did it in a great fashion.”
