    Makes you kind of wish he had done that in the Michigan game. I know, I know, sorry for opening old wounds. lol

    People must have forgot how up and down he is. Dunno what it is but its always been like that. Horrible to all star, game to game.

    He showed moves in the paint, has the smoothest shot and would bang down low. Had huge potential. Oh well

    18 pts on 7 of 10 shooting overall, 4 of 5 from 3. 2 rebs, 2 ast. Still 7 fouls. Very low rebounding numbers for playing 33 minutes though.

    Sounds like he was hanging on the perimeter quite a bit.

    Which is fine. All he needs to do is to spread the floor on offense and not get abused on defense against other teams' back-up 4s.

    33 minutes is pretty good PT. Considering you get 6 fouls in the NBA, he only gave up one too many fouls this game. That should be viewed as an improvement, as it understandably takes some time to get used to the speed of the NBA and playing against bigger, more aggressive players on any given night compared to college. If he can consistently drop double digits in 30 minutes while spreading the floor and without fouling out, that has to be viewed by GM's as a good sign for his potential value as a stretch 4 in the NBA.

    He broke his nose last night in their game against Portland. Played pretty good in his limited time on the court with 10 points and 5 boards. Could miss rest of summer league though

    In brighter news for Murphy, Tom Thibodeau had this to say in an interview:

    This interview might have been before the summer league games but still bodes well for Erik.

    i read somewhere that he said he would be fine, and in fact, he broke it before that in a scrimmage, and just tweaked it again

    Murphy had a solid game last night, 19 points on 7 of 10 shooting, 13 rebounds and three blocked shots. They only play 10 minute quarters.

    How often do you get to watch a basketball game with a rain delay?

    Link to highlights and Murphy interview.

    These kinds of performances will secure him a spot on the Bulls roster.

    THREE BLOCKED SHOTS?!? Did that equal how many he had in his whole Gator career? :wink:
