The past week has been an emotional one for the NBA community. Teams boycotted playoff games on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in order to bring awareness to the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man in Kenosha, Wis. last Sunday.
Murray followed his performance on the court with an emotional postgame interview, where it was clear the fight against racial and social injustices was on his mind.
Murray isn’t ready to go home, and he will have a chance to extend his stay in Orlando on Tuesday. Green and the rest of the NBA world definitely will be watching to see if Murray can drop another 50-piece.
