Morris scored 15 points (7-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt) while chipping in five assists and four rebounds Tuesday night during the Nuggets' 119-101 victory over the Thunder. He logged 21 minutes off the bench. With the score being 97-74 in Denver's favor at the end of the third quarter, key Nugget contributors rested throughout the final frame. Most notable was Jamal Murray (elbow), opening the door for Morris to fire up second-half shots. Tuesday marked Morris's second-highest scoring output of the young season.
Morris registered 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and a steal across 23 minutes off the bench in Sunday's win over the Knicks. Morris only played 22 minutes -- his second-lowest output of the campaign -- but still made his presence felt off the bench. Morris has scored in double digits in eight of his last nine contests and has been an effective scoring threat, making 52.6 percent of his field-goal attempts during that nine-game stretch.
Morris posted four points (1-3 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-4 FT) while adding a rebound, two assists and three steals across 25 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's win over the Timberwolves. Morris has played at least 24 minutes in six straight contests, but the production just wasn't there in this game -- he failed to reach the 10-point mark for the first time in six games while struggling from the field, and perhaps the lone positive aspect was that he recorded a season high in steals. This was an unusual game for Morris, who's generally a far more reliable shooter, so look for him to bounce back Thursday against Dallas.
Morris scored 24 points (10-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and collected four assists along with two steals in a loss to the Kings on Tuesday. Jamal Murray was ruled out shortly before the contest with an elbow injury, thrusting Morris into the starting lineup. He responded with a career-high 24 points and knocked down an efficient 10 of 15 shots, including a pair of three-pointers. The output marked Morris' third straight game hitting double figures in scoring, and he is averaging 12.8 points per game overall this season.
Morris will start Tuesday's game at Sacramento, Katy Winge of Altitude Sports reports. The 25-year-old will receive his first start of the season since Jamal Murray is a late scratch with a right elbow bruise. Morris is averaging 9.0 points, 3.0 assists and 2.3 rebounds in 23.3 minutes this season but will have a heavier workload Tuesday.
