Jamal Murray is ascending, from star to superstar in this year’s playoffs.

He started with the two 50-point perornaces in the comeback series versus the Jazz. And he’s continued it during these Western Conference Finals against the Lakers.

Over the last week, Murray averaged 26.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 7.3 assists per game. His best performance came in Game 3, Denver’s first win in the series, in which he came close to a triple-double with 28, 8 rebounds and 7 assists.

One of his most memorable shots came near the end of Game 3, a straight-up moon shot over the top of 6’10” Anthony Davis to secure the win.

He also performed this insane play last night, with some comparing him to Michael Jordan:

Thanks to that grouping of superb games by Murray, he earned ELITE Sportsbook’s athlete of the week award. And, he’s now won 2-of-4 of the awards all-time.
