Lebron James disrespected Jamal Murray in Game 1, and Jamal Murray may have gotten revenge in Game 3. While fighting through a screen Jamal Murray elbowed Lebron James’ face almost breaking his jaw. The Jamal Murray elbow looked intentionally upon review, and he was assessed a Flagrant 1. Lebron stayed down on the ground for a few moments trying to make sure his jaw was still functioning properly.
From the looks of it, it seems possible Jamal Murray gave Lebron a dirty elbow to the face jaw area.
Going back to Game 1, Lebron James screamed “And 1” in Jamal Murray’s face after scoring a tough basket on him. Some people think that in return Jamal Murray elbowed Lebron in the face to send a message back. The elbow might be Jamal Murray’s way of saying he is fed up with the Lebron James and Lakers bullying him.
This might go down as one of the most mysterious elbows in NBA history. Was it intentional? If so what what was the motive?
