Jamal Murray was having the game of his life against the Boston Celtics, as his Denver Nuggets were on their way to 9-1 start to their 2018-19 campaign.

He scored a career-high 48 points shooting 19-for-30 from the field and 5-for-11 from beyond the arc, also adding five rebounds and four assists to his totals.

At that time, Murray faced similar criticism from Ball and Lakers coach Luke Walton and after Monday's game he referenced that incident with the Lakers last season in regards to his 48-point eruption. During the game he was yelling at Nuggets fans to "shut up" and throwing the ball into the crowd wasn't a great move. "But congratulations to him on 48 points". Our defence has to be better, especially against a player like that in the pick-and-roll. He made us pay in certain instances, making some tough shots and some tough layups.

It was a "bullshit move", according to Kyrie Irving, who hurled the ball into the crowd in frustration. He missed a layup with 17.6 seconds left that would have given him 50 points on the night, and took one final shot at the number when he fired up a three at the buzzer.

"What kind of competitor wouldn't it bother?"

Murray said he wasn't trying to run up the score and he didn't mean any disrespect to the Celtics. I really don't care at that point. Boston didn't go down without a fight and any time they got a bucket Murray had a response. I know half the team over there, so no hard feelings. My emotions just took over.

"I don't have any words for myself", Murray said, via The Denver Post.
