Undrafted rookie Scotty Pippen Jr. led the way for Los Angeles in its last win filling up the stat sheet with 18 points, eight assists and three steals.
In Murray’s debut, he went for 26 points and eight rebounds on 10-14 shooting (4-5 from three) and followed that up with nine points and nine rebounds as the shots were not falling as easily (4-15 shooting, 1-7 from three) and the defense was more focused on his game.
In the paint, Murray is complemented by second-year big man Neemias Queta, who is averaging 13 points and five rebounds through two games.
On the other side, this is an excellent opportunity for Pippen to shine on a roster that might feature one other player Los Angeles can use next season in Mac McClung.
Pippen is averaging 14.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 5.5 assists in his two games.
