Denver Nuggets Tweet of the Week: Monte Morris comments on one of his flashy plays this preseason

New, comments

It wasn’t a dunk, but it was still a strong move by Monte

NBA: Preseason-Portland Trail Blazers at Denver Nuggets Michael Ciaglo-USA TODAY Sports

One of the best things about Twitter during the NBA season is when players use the platform to comment on moments that happen during a game. On Thursday, Denver Nuggets point guard Monte Morris retweeted a post from the team account highlighting a play that occurred in the final preseason game against the Portland Trail Blazers. The clip showcases a strong move that Morris made on the baseline for a clear look at the basket that ends in a layup.

See the clip and Morris’ commentary below:

What I love about this tweet, besides the fact that Morris admits that he was conserving energy by not going for the dunk (since it is only preseason after all), is how he draws attention to the bench’s reaction to his play. The overwhelming support of the bench was a reoccurring theme last season, so it’s good to see that hasn’t changed.

5 more days until we get to see the dunks that Morris has been saving for the regular season, and hopefully they all elicit strong reactions from the bench.
