Michael Porter Jr. double-doubled for the Nuggets in a tough 115-125 loss to the Blazers, posting 27 points (10-of-18 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs) and 12 rebounds.
MPJ actually filled the stat sheet, adding four 3s, two assists, two steals and one block to round out his line for the night. The restart has been a breakout showcase for Porter and we're just here to enjoy the show. It should be noted, however, that the Nuggets have been undermanned, missing Jamal Murray, Will Barton and Gary Harris. To MPJ's credit, he's passed the eye test and is going to be a hot target in drafts in 2020-21.
