Despite playing alongside several burgeoning young talents, Dejounte Murray has arguably taken the most significant strides in his offensive development of any player on San Antonio’s roster in 2020-2021.
The fourth-year point guard has improved his per-game numbers across the board in his first go-round as a full-time starter, and he finally looks 100% now two years removed from a devastating ACL injury.
Spurs fans already knew Dejounte was a generational on-ball defender. But the Washington University alumnus has steadily rounded out his game to become one of the premier two-way forces in the NBA.
While Silver and Black have leaned on Dejounte’s point-stopping prowess night in and night out, they’ll need even more out of him on the other end with Derrick White sidelined for the final leg of the season.
Averaging 23.7 points, 11.7 rebounds, and eight assists on staggeringly efficient 52/43/100 shooting splits over his last three outings, Murray is in the middle of the best multi-game stretch of his career.
But with the toughest remaining strength of schedule in the league and the mounting pressure of securing a playoff berth, can the 24-year-old floor general maintain his unbelievable level of productivity?
