John Collins (back contusion) returned from a one-game absence and posted 17 points on 6-of-15 shooting (4-of-5 FTs), five rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a 3-pointer vs. the Nuggets on Monday.
Collins' 11-game season is still a bit of a small sample, but he's been amazing, producing as the 20th/10th-best player (8-cat/9-cat) in those games. His defensive stats are mostly to credit for the improvement from last season, but that may be unlikely to continue. De'Andre Hunter had a strong performance as well with 16 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 37 points.
