Will Barton scored 19 points (1 trey) on 8-of-16 shooting, adding five boards, five dimes, four steals and two blocks in Friday’s 103-89 win over the hapless Magic in Orlando.
The Thrill’s arrow is pointed straight up. With top-60 value on the season, top-50 over the last month and top-20 over the last two weeks (largely without Nikola Jokic (ankle), Barton continues to reward owners who used a late round pick on him. Jokic should be back soon so his usage shouldn’t be quite as high, but with Paul Millsap (wrist) out for a while, Barton will still put up impressive numbers for this Nuggets team.
