Video: Jamal Murray recreated the Michael Jordan layup
Jamal Murray continued to show his spectacular skills during a Game 4 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night.
Late in the second quarter of the Denver Nuggets’ 114-108 loss to the Lakers, Murray drove to the basket to try making a play. He saw LeBron James standing in his path and faked out James by switching from a dunk attempt to the layup. The hangtime he got on the play was incredible:

The layup was unreal and reminded many of Michael Jordan’s famous layup against the New Jersey Nets in 1991.

Both plays were awesome, and they sure resemble each other.
Murray probably doesn’t care about the plaudits for the layup since his team lost. The Nuggets trail the Lakers 3-1 in the series.
