    Nuggets' Michael Porter: Perimeter moes continue Monday

    Porter produced 24 points (11-21 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds and two assists in 38 minutes during Monday's 116-107 loss to Golden State.Porter has now shot a combined 2-of-18 from the perimeter across his last two games, yet has somehow managed to score at least 20 points in both contests. It was a somewhat empty night for Porter but perhaps the biggest takeaway was the fact Jamal Murray (knee) could be looking at a lengthy stint on the sideline. If that is the case, Porter is going to be locked in as the teams' second option on offense, ensuring he should be able to put together a strong finish to the season.

    Nuggets' Michael Porter: Misses 11 threes in loss

    Porter compiled 22 points (9-23 FG, 1-12 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 11 rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot across 35 minutes in Sunday's 105-87 loss to the Celtics.Although Porter couldn't gain any traction with an errant three-point shot, his 11 rebounds marked a third straight game with double-digit boards. Porter came into Sunday's game riding a nice run to begin the month of April, averaging 21 points and 8.6 rebounds over a five-game span. Porter appeared to injure his hand Sunday, but he downplayed the issue during his postgame media availability. "I didn't injure it," Porter said of his right hand. "I tweaked it... but it's not anything serious. It was on my shooting hand, but that's not why I missed 11 threes. Just one of those nights. Hopefully I never have another night like that in my career."

    Nuggets' Michael Porter: Turns in 20 points

    Porter registered 20 points (7-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds, two blocked shots and an assist across 32 minutes in Thursday's 101-94 win over the ClippersThe arrival of Aaron Gordon hasn't harmed Porter's starting role despite speculation to the contrary. Paul Millsap and JaMychal Green seem to be the odd men out in the transaction, so Porter's output will be largely unaffected moving forward. It would be difficult for the Denver Nuggets to disregard Porter's recent string of production. Over 14 games in March, Porter averaged 20.3 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 1.1 assists.

    Nuggets' Michael Porter: Excels again with double-double

    Porter recorded 15 points (6-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds and three assists across 27 minutes in Sunday's 126-102 win over the Hawks.Porter followed up a superb 25-point shoeing against the Pelicans with his eighth double-double of the season. Coach Michael Malone has been notoriously fickle about Porter's usage in the past, but that has faded down the stretch. Porter has been a consistent presence in the starting five since early February. Since taking over at small forward, he's averaged a steady 31.5 minutes per game and has excelled on both sides of the ball.

    Nuggets' Michael Porter: Goes for 25 points Friday

    Porter delivered 25 points (10-17 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five rebounds, two assists and a block across 40 minutes in Friday's win over the Pelicans.Porter was coming off four straight appearances in which he ended just a few points shy of reaching the 20-point plateau, but he went off Friday and recorded his fourth-best scoring output of the campaign. Porter has scored at least 20 points in six of his last 10 contests and is quickly settling himself as one of Denver's top scoring threats behind the likes of Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray.
