Will Barton took advantage of his opportunity in a spot start for the ailing Wilson Chandler on Monday night, shooting 9-of-15 from the field and 5-of-6 from deep on his way to a team-high 25 points in addition to six rebounds and five assists.
Barton seems to produce an eyebrow-raising line every single time he gets plugged into the starting five. Denver’s sixth man is a top-100 guy on the year and this line just underscores the type of upside he’d have if one of Denver’s wing or backcourt players ever had to miss substantial time. Make sure he’s not available in any league since Chandler’s back injury could linger for a few more days, though Will the Thrill should be rostered even if he’s stuck on the bench.
