Porter had 28 points (11-17 FG, 6-10 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and two steals in Saturday's loss to the Nets.

While Denver blew a 15-point halftime advantage and suffered its third loss in the last four games, Porter has proven more than capable of functioning as the No. 2 scoring option in the absence of Jamal Murray (knee). He's topped 20 points in 14 of his last 17 games, averaging 24.6 points per game on 55.2 percent shooting (43.5 percent 3Pt) in that stretch. Over his last 10 appearances, Porter is hitting 4.3 three-pointers per game at a 49.4 percent clip.
