Michael Porter Jr. contributed for the Nuggets off the bench on Tuesday to the tune of 15 points (5-of-11 FG, 3-of-7 3PT), five rebounds and one block.
The Nuggets' supporting cast showed up in Game 5 and they were able to get within three games to two with the victory. Porter Jr. was a liability all night on the defensive end but still played 34 minutes. The Nuggets were cooking on the offensive side, especially Jamal Murray (42 points) and Nikola Jokic (31 points), and Porter Jr. has been a big part of their successes in Orlando. Both Porter Jr and the Nuggets as a whole were coming off two consecutive ugly showings, however, and they will look to push the series to seven games with Game 6 coming on Thursday.
