I'm probably in the minority here but I've noticed it since last season that Jamal Murray doesn't play well with Will Barton. I'm not exactly sure why (could be usage?) but I'd be surprised if he got a 40 point game this year.
His top 2 scoring performances this year:
27 points 8/19 40min vs Phoenix Suns W by 1
39 points 14/24 31min vs Memphis Grizzlies W by 17
Will Barton those 2 games (also lowest minutes of season):
5 points 1/6 20min vs Phoenix Suns
6 points 2/6 23min vs Memphis Grizzlies
Last year Jamal Murray scored 30+ 5 times when Will Barton went down but only twice when he came back.
This is just extra stats to prove my point that I don't see Jamal Murray taking a leap with Will's heavy minutes.
Mind you, I haven't been a Will Barton fan since he's gotten here so take this as you so please. Lol.
Ah, haven't posted a while on here... I hate to bring a negative to the conversation, but what I said beginning of the season still holds true.
