Jakob Poeltl tied a playoff career-high with 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting to go with seven rebounds, three assists and a steal in Game 3 on Thursday.
Poeltl logged 31 minutes and is going to have a heavy workload in this series as the Nuggets like to play big with Nikola Jokic and Mason Plumlee. It helps that he's punishing the Nuggerts with five offensive rebounds and has been rock solid defensively. Coach Popovich is opting for more Poeltl in this series but that could change in the next round depending on who they play.
