Dejounte Murray notched his fourth triple-double of the season on Wednesday with 22 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists in a tough loss to the Heat. Murray finished 8-of-17 from the field and 5-of-5 from the stripe, and he added one 3-pointer, one steal and three turnovers in his 36 minutes of floor time. Lonnie Walker praised Murray after the game, saying, "He’s hitting his stride. What people expected out of Dejounte being a point guard, being a leader of this team, he’s handling it greatly. And as the season continues to go forward, he is continuing to get better each and every day." With his fourth triple-double of the season tonight, he became just the third Spur in franchise history to accomplish that feat, joining the ranks of David Robinson and Johnny Moore.

Kemba Walker (strained left oblique) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game against the Spurs. Walker has missed Boston's last two games due to the oblique strain, and it appears likely that he will miss a third. Marcus Smart will see more time on the ball, while Payton Pritchard is worth considering as a streaming option despite the fact that he will still be coming off the bench.
