Was Jamal Murray's last-second shot disrespectful? | Around the Horn

Was Jamal Murray's last-second shot disrespectful? | Around the Horn

The league just announced that Kyrie Irving has been fined $25,000 for that little move following last night's loss to Denver.

Irked by Murray's move, Irving grabbed the ball and air mailed it into the stands at Denver's Pepsi Center. Congratulations to him having 48 points. "He did it in a great fashion". Our defence has to be better, especially against a player like that. He made us pay in certain instances, making some tough shots and some tough layups.

"But the ball deserves to go in the crowd after a bulls**t move like that. So, I threw it in the crowd".

I'm not a fan of unwritten rules in any sport so the late jumper by Jamal Murray didn't bother me. But Irving did not like Murray firing up an uncontested three-pointer at the buzzer, miffed that Murray didn't simply dribble out the clock.

"I just knew where he was going to be", Murray said of the third-quarter delivery.

Indian media also reported officials had acknowledged that no vet was present during the hunt, as required by the court order. Services of controversial private marksman Shafat Ali Khan was also hired by the forest department.

"I really wasn't meaning no disrespect".

Still irked following the game, Irving explained his actions.

"I think everybody understood that's what I was trying to do".

Jamal Murray had 48 points Monday night with time winding down and the outcome no longer in doubt, when he launched a three-pointer in an effort to crack the 50-point barrier.

"I didn't have no conscience", Murray said of his attempt at 50. That was the problem. His mind was simply set on going for 50 points. "It was just a fun game and my emotions took over".
