Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray has a shooting stroke that has left the nets inside Oklahoma City’s Chesapeake Energy Arena dripping wet. So you can excuse Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams if his sneakers got a little slippery defending Murray during the first half.
Adams found himself out in no man’s land after helping on Murray as he probed the paint. However, Westbrook switched onto Nokic, which left the Thunder center on an island with Murray.
Murray took advantage of his crouching prey by lacing a quick dribble between his legs, executing an inside out dribble and then snapping back to his left with a slick crossover that put Adams’ confused ankles to sleep.
