Missed the 2021/22 NBA season due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament and did not play for 18 months. When the point guard / shooting guard eventually made his return, he helped the Denver Nuggets to their first ever NBA Championship. The Nuggets beat Miami Heat in Game 5 of the Final to end a 47-year wait. Murray averaged 21.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 10.0 assists per game in the Finals, joining Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, and LeBron James as the only players in NBA history to average at least 20 points and 10 assists per game in an NBA Finals series.
