Keegan Murray shines in rookie debut for Sacramento Kings
Keegan Murray, unfortunately, missed the NBA season opener with the Sacramento Kings due to health and safety protocols. Fortunately, he was cleared and ready to go for game two of the season against the Los Angeles Clippers.
In his first game, Murray came off the bench, but that did not dictate his effectiveness. Murray made an instant impact with the Kings and was efficient all night long.
When it was all said and done, Murray finished with 19 points on a phenomenal 7-for-10 shooting effort. He was perfect from inside the arc and nailed a trio of 3-pointers while adding 5 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocks.
Murray’s work also shined through in various aspects of the game with plays off of fastbreaks, half-court plays and on defense. His long-awaited debut was fantastic and should only get fans ready for more down the road.
