Will Barton continued his mini-tear, dropping 24 points, seven boards and eight assists on the Rockets in Monday’s home loss.
Barton is loving life without Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler in the rotation. He scored 35 two games ago and was back at it again tonight after only scoring 10 on Saturday against these same Rockets. Barton shot 8-of-13, hit four triples and notched a steal and a block. Add in just one turnover and you have a 9-cat gem. Up to 29 minutes per game over his last five, Barton remains a strong play as long as the Nuggets are shorthanded. Get him active.
