NBA news: Hall-of-fame star gives verdict on Jamal Murray incident after Kyrie Irving fine
With just seconds remaining in the Celtics game on Monday night, which the Denver Nuggets had won 115-107, starlet Jamal Murray had the ball inside the Boston half of the court.

With the clock running out, the un-written rule in basketball states that you dont go looking for more points once the game is won.

However, Murray shot an audacious three-point attempt from deep in the half in a bid to get to 50 points.

However, Hill stated on The Starters podcast that he didnt see any issue with Murray trying to score more points.

“I know you dont want someone scoring 50 on you, but guard him for the other 48, and you prevent that from happening.

Whilst he claimed to have no problem with Murray taking the shot, Hill admitted that he had never been placed in that scenario.

“I have had career nights and things of that nature, but nowadays everything is in the arena so you know your numbers,” Hill added.
