Morris collected 11 points (5-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six assists, one rebound, and one steal in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 114-105 Game 2 win over the Spurs. Morris rediscovered his scoring rhythm, this after totaling two points on one-of-six from the field in Saturday's Game 1 loss. Moreover, he has now handed out 11 assists compared to zero turnovers through these first two postseason affairs.
Morris finished with 22 points (8-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 118-108 loss to Utah. Morris turned in his best performance in quite some time Tuesday, finishing with 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting. Morris has been a pleasant surprise for the Nuggets this season and is basically the reason Isaiah Thomas is out of the rotation. His role is up and down depending on the nature of the scoreline which means he is better served as a streaming option. The Nuggets need to win Wednesday to ensure a top-two finish meaning Morris will likely remain on the bench.
Morris has been named to the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports. Morris will get the nod at point guard in place of Jamal Murray, who's out for rest purposes. Morris' last opportunity to join the starting five dates back to Feb. 4 against Detroit when he dropped 18 points over 34 minutes.
Morris finished with 19 points (8-13 FG, 3-5 Pt), three rebounds, three assists and one steal across 26 minutes in the Nuggets' 113-85 win over the Spurs on Wednesday. Morris saw plenty of minutes in the lopsided victory, producing an efficient line based on his best shooting effort since March 22. The 2017 second-round pick has been seeing at least 20 minutes in the majority of contests, and he's most recently parlayed that into seven double-digit scoring efforts over the last 10 games. Morris should continue seeing a similar allotment of playing time behind Jamal Murray for the remainder of the regular season.
Morris finished with 16 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four assists and three rebounds over 27 minutes in the Nuggets' loss to the Rockets on Thursday. Morris came away with a solid stat line in Thursday's loss, though his play this season has been very inconsistent, especially in the scoring department. Morris has averaged 24.7 minutes over his last 10 games, but the production just isn't there to make him a viable play outside of deep leagues.
