Dejounte Murray registered 17 points (5-of-15 FG, 6-of-6 FT), seven assists, one rebound, one 3-pointer, three steals and two turnovers across 32 minutes in Sunday’s loss to the Mavericks. Murray had missed the past five games with a fairly severe illness that resulted in him losing 7-8 pounds, but he was able to get back out there for a tuneup in San Antonio’s final regular-season game before the play-in tournament. The Spurs will need to beat the Pelicans, and then the loser between the Timberwolves (No. 7) and Clippers (No. 8) to advance to the playoffs, but at least they’ll have their star point guard back as they attempt to make their first postseason appearance since 2019.
