Jamal Murray had a big game Monday night to help the Denver Nuggets move to 9-1 and 6-0 at home.

The point guard had a career-high 48 points on 19 of 30 shooting to go along with five rebounds and four assists. Denver stays undefeated at home with the 115-107 win over the Boston Celtics.

Fourth Quarter kid

Murray had 19 of the Nuggets’ 27 fourth-quarter points as the Celtics tried to close the gap. He tied his career high of 38 points on a heat-check 3-pointer with more than six minutes left in the game.

Even when Boston threw multiple defenders at Murray, he still found a way to get to the rim and score.

He took no prisoners and even broke a few ankles along the way to the career high.

No Nuggets player has had a 50-point game since Carmelo Anthony in 2011. Murray had the most since that Anthony effort, but still fell just shy. Regardless, he has shown that he has the moves to reach that next milestone.

Not everyone’s a fan

Several Celtics players were not happy after the Nuggets’ win though.

Kyrie Irving, who had 31 points of his own, had words for Murray who heaved a shot at the buzzer to try and reach 50 points.

Teammate Jaylen Brown saw Murray’s action when the game was already won, or lost from the Celtics’ point of view, as “disrespectful.”

Still, Murray probably kept the ball despite what Irving said.
