Nuggets' Will Barton: Shot goes cold Saturday

Barton compiled 10 points (2-13 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 5-9 FT), four assists, one rebound and one block over 33 minutes in Saturday's 109-105 loss to the Rockets.

Saturday's result exemplified the dilemma that Barton often represents for fantasy owners. When he has the hot hand, such as Thursday versus the Clippers, there's few that are better. However, when that same shot goes cold, the results can be painful. Saturday was an example of the latter, as Barton needed his nine visits to the charity stripe to reach double digits in the scoring column for the third straight game. The one sure thing with Barton is that he'll see plenty of opportunity to get back on track, as coach Mike Malone leans heavily on the five-year veteran on his second unit.
