Monte Morris logged 27 minutes on Thursday night, dropping 20 points, three rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two 3-pointers against the Lakers.
Morris has quietly been a solid part of Denver's hot start but tonight was his breakout game. He set new career-highs in points and threes tonight while tying previous bests in assists and steals. Morris will hold the backup point guard job at least until Isaiah Thomas is activated and then probably a few games thereafter as IT gets into shape, so he's definitely a deep league add.
