The emergence of a new leader in San Antonio


Share post:

Within a tremendous day in which we were able to enjoy Joel Embiid’s 50 points in just 27 minutes, Nikola Jokic’s 67th triple-double in his career or the umpteenth recital of a Luka Doncic who smiles with the rebirth of the Dallas Mavericks , we find another feat that has not transcended in the same way.

Whether due to market, relevance or collective direction, the truth is that Dejounte Murray’s triple-double in the victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder has received little attention from the main media that regularly cover the NBA.

And it may seem irrelevant but it is not. Murray has eight triple-doubles this season, a figure only surpassed by Nikola Jokic, with ten, and Russell Westbrook, with nine. In addition, he is only two others away from matching David Robinson as the player with the most triple-doubles in the history of the San Antonio Spurs.
