Michael Porter Jr. and Nikola Jokić tied for a team-high 28 points in Wednesday's 124-105 loss to the Jazz, but Porter Jr. was more efficient as he needed four fewer attempts to get there.
MPJ did little else outside of scoring the ball with six rebounds and one block. However, MPJ has proven that he has the potential to become one of the league's most feared scorers and Wednesday was no different as he shot 10-of-17 from the field, 6-of-9 from distance and 2-of-3 from the free throw line in 33 minutes. The Nuggets need to find contributions elsewhere on the roster but MPJ seems to be one of the biggest risers heading into next year's draft season.
