Trey Lyles delivered 11 points, four rebounds, three assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 21 minutes on Thursday night.
Lyles ranked second in minutes among the team's bench players and was part of the closing group, which does bode well for him going forward. His shooting is probably the best fit with Denver's current starters, as the Nuggets badly missed Will Barton's scoring down the stretch. Juan Hernangomez (two points in eight minutes) and Torrey Craig (two points, three rebounds, a steal and a block in 26 minutes) are nice players but if any one of the fill-in candidates is going to put up points quickly, it'll be Lyles. He's the only one that 12-team owners should be considering.
