Jamal Murray, the Canadian basketball player from the team, the Denver Nuggets scored 50 points in the recent game. This is one of the highest points earned by any basketball player. The last time the same thing happened was on the 6th of February. It had been scored by the players, Nikola Jokic and Stephen Curry.

Jamal Murray was accompanied by another player Joel Embiid from the team, the Philadelphia 76ers. Murray reached the milestone while he played against the team, the Cleveland Cavaliers. The score from the game was 120-103. And, the same had been achieved by Embiid in a game where they won over the team, the Chicago Bulls.

Jamal Murray Created History

The 50 points scored by Murray is the third such incident in the entire career of the player. This includes the playoffs as well. However, the performance given by the player this Friday was one of his most efficient ones. On the field goals, the score earned by him was 21 of 25, which is 84%. On the attempts of 3-point, the player was 8 of 10.

The shooting of 84% that was delivered was the second-highest percentage of shooting. This is the case when the game of 53-point is taken into consideration. The shooting of 87% was delivered by the player, Wilt Chamberlain in the year 1967. It was also in the point game of 53.

Jamal Murray had a total of 20 points, both from the 3-point range and the paint. With that, he has joined the list of very few players to have achieved the milestone. They include Kobe Bryant, Bradley Beal, James Harden, and LeBron James.

None of the points scored by the player came from the line of the free throw. Jamal Murray created history in the NBA by being the first such player to make the score of 50. And that too with zero attempts of a free throw.
