Nuggets guard Jamal Murray had some fun at his former teammate’s expense.
Hampton air-balled a 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter. In an ode to Al Horford, Murray repeatedly exaggeratedly flinched and shielded himself as if an onslaught of air-balls were bombarding him from the ceiling.
That cold-blooded response turned out to be foreshadowing. Wendell Carter Jr. air-balled on Denver’s next possession.
