Jamal Murray's moment, NBA resumes play, Goodbye to Luka and Dame

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - August 31, 2020 - 1:11:32

Ben Golliver and Michael Pina open by gushing over Jamal Murray's latest scoring explosion and poignant post-game interview. What does Murray's playoff rise say about the Nuggets' pecking order and the importance of big men in the NBA's evolving style? Where does Murry rank among 23-and-under talents? Will his historic scoring duel with Donovan Mitchell lead to bubble asterisk talk? From there, Ben and Michael shift gears to recap the Bucks' protest and the NBA's return. Did the players extract enough in their negotiations with the owners? Did the protest prove its point? The guys close with farewells to Luka Doncic's Dallas Mavericks and Damian Lillard's Portland Trail Blazers. How did the Lakers turn their series around to eliminate the Blazers and what are the next steps on Doncic's rise to world domination?
