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.
Attempting to score 50 points, Murray put up a three at the buzzer attempting to hit half a hundred points for the night, but the shot rimmed off the front iron. Despite the 15-point deficit, Murray had torched the Celtics for 14 of the Nuggets' 19 points shooting 6-for-7 from the field and 2-for-3 from deep in the first frame.

I just had in my mind that I was going to go 50, and I think everybody kind of understood that was what I was trying to do. "I don't want to make a big deal out of it".
"Obviously, I was pissed at the game, but it's time to decompress and move on", Irving told reporters after the game. Congratulations to him having 48 points. "He did it in a great fashion against us", Irving said of Murray's offensive show. Monday night was no different, as defense came to play when it mattered most and Murray carried the weight offensively.
"He was the primary concern tonight".
"But the ball deserves to go in the crowd after a bulls**t move like that".
The Trump referendum: Possible lessons from 2018 midterms
Results will have far reaching consequences for both Mr Trump's powers and the speed of which bills are able to pass into law. And 35 Senate seats are in play, as are nearly 40 governorships and the balance of power in virtually every state legislature.
"I think everybody understood that's what I was trying to do". My emotions just took over like it did with the Lakers previous year.
Most players don't get many opportunities to put a 50 in the box score, so the 22-year-old Murray decided to make the most of his chance as the clock wound down.
Inside the Celtics' locker room, the shot didn't sit well and veterans like Irving and Marcus Morris were clearly irked. "It was unprofessional", Morris said. I feel like it was a little bit disrespectful but, at the same time, let him do him. The final 3 struck me as a self-imposed compromise to Murray.
From the early moments, it was clear that Murray had everything going for him.
"I don't have any words for myself", Murray said, via The Denver Post. The team does get two days to recover before opening a back-to-back in Phoenix.
Whether it was a key defensive stop or a key three-pointer, the Nuggets bench unit made their stamp on this game and continue to prove how vital they are going to be for this Nuggets team moving forward.
