Will Barton came off the bench on Monday for 41 minutes, scoring 23 points with eight baords, six assists, a steal and four 3-pointers.
Barton went 9-for-20 from the field and is taking on most of the playmaking responsibilities for the Nuggets as they’re without their usual No. 1 option on offense. Over his past four games he’s averaging 21.3 points, 3.0 3s, 5.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.0 blocks on 50.9 percent shooting. He should have been owned all season long and should be a solid standard league play especially with Paul Millsap out for an extended period. The Nuggets are going to need his scoring punch.
