Without further ado, here are the best highlights and footwear from a light night of basketball.


PRO PERFORMANCES

Murray Staves Off Elimination

The back-and-forth between Jamal Murray and Donovan Mitchell has been fun to watch in the 2020 playoffs. This time around Jamal Murray came out on top with a 42-point performance.

Aside for the production, Murray was putting up the highlights as well including this 360 degree spinning layup.

All this leads to a W for the Denver Nuggets, who lived to fight another day now down 3-2 to the Utah Jazz.

PG Proves the Haters Wrong

The much-maligned Paul George had a huge game against the Dallas Mavericks tonight, dropping a game-high 35 points. PG was criticized heavily for giving himself the nickname “Playoff P” while also scoring single digits a few times in this series.
