Barton scored 23 points (9-17 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT), adding on six rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block during 38 minutes of action Wednesday, as the Nuggets fell to the Mavericks 113-97. Barton trailed only Jamal Murray (25 points) in Denver's scoring attack, albeit on a night where the team failed to eclipse 100 points for the first time since the end of January. Coincidentally, the end of January was also the last time Barton scored 23 or more points. The performance is overshadowed by a global pandemic, with all future NBA games being postponed as the league seeks to address and protect the basketball world from COVID-19.
Barton chipped in 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-9 3Pt), six rebounds, four steals, two assists and two blocks in 32 minutes Monday during the Nuggets' 109-95 win over Milwaukee. The four steals were a season high for Barton on this stat-stuffing evening against Milwaukee's second unit. In a seemingly bizarre referee vendetta, Barton was called for carrying the ball on consecutive possessions. Regardless, he's now hit double-digit scoring in six straight games and will find himself in a high-octane contest Tuesday versus the Mavericks.
Barton amassed 22 points (9-18 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds and four assists in 37 minutes during Saturday's 104-102 loss to the Cavaliers. Barton was one of only a couple of bright spots for the Nuggets who fell to the lowly Cavaliers. Barton has put up double-digit scoring in five consecutive games; however, he has managed only one steal and zero blocks during that time. A number of the Nuggets primary scoring options have been struggling of late and so Barton is going to have a license to hoist the ball making him a solid enough 12-team option.
Barton produced 18 points (7-14 FG, 4-5 3Pt), four rebounds and four assists across 29 minutes in Friday's 132-103 loss to the Clippers. Despite the loss, Barton's return to health is great news for the Nuggets, who went 1-3 while he was sidelined with an injury. His average of 14.8 points per game makes him the third-leading scorer on the team, and his consensus ADP of 136 has made him one of the best values of the season.
Barton (knee) started at small forward and put up 16 points (6-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), nine rebounds, five assists and one steal across 32 minutes Friday in the Nuggets' 113-101 loss to the Thunder. Barton had missed the Nuggets' final four games of the first half with a swollen right knee and was initially listed as doubtful ahead of Friday's contest, but the 29-year-old was able to rejoin the lineup for the first game out of the All-Star break. He immediately recaptured a starting role on the wing and took on a normal minutes load, bumping Torrey Craig back to bench as a result. Barton doesn't look like he'll be subjected to any further restrictions moving forward.
