Will Barton blew up for a career-high 37 points as the Nuggets edged out the Bulls 111-110 on Thursday night.
Barton slid into the starting lineup after Nikola Jokic (ankle) was ruled out of the game with an injury. Barton had a fantastic game as he caught fire from downtown, connecting on 6-of-9 shots from beyond the arc. He also added two rebounds, three assists and three steals. This was a nice bounce-back game for Barton who is coming off back-to-back games where he scored just nine points. He’s scored 20 points or more in three of his last five games though, so expect more good games as he steps up for the injury-plagued Nuggets.
