Jamal Murray broke a Celtics workout record held by another former Wildcat


Jamal Murray got scalding hot during a workout with the Boston Celtics earlier today. The former Wildcat connected on 79 of 100 three-point attempts during a spot shooting drill, setting a new pre-draft workout record in Boston.

The previous record was 77 made threes, held by none other than Kyle Wiltjer.

Murray told reporters afterward that he got off to a terrible start, and had to hit 8-of-10 from the final spot to reach his mark in the end.

He also showed a little love to Kentucky, saying, “I think every player should be thinking about going to Kentucky… You focus on winning basketball, you upgrade your strengths and work on your weaknesses. Coach Cal really makes you look good. He really focuses on your game and individually he doesn’t leave anybody out.”

    i’ll bet he would barely make 50% from behind the basket with a towel over his head though.

    Someone needs some better material.
    That said, that’s some amazing shooting! I’d like to see Murray in Celtic green, and they certainly need the shooting/scoring, but they have plenty of guards but not near enough quality front court guys.

    That’s pretty good. Would make for a decent career average.

    Could have used that kind of shooting against IU.
