Game Notes from Tuesday’s 105-94 preseason win over the Portland Trail Blazers

After nearly two years of waiting to play basketball, Michael Porter Jr. finally returned to the court and showed Denver Nuggets fans exactly why they should be excited about the 2018 first round pick. His strong scoring performance, coupled with the strong debut of backup power forward Jerami Grant, offered Nuggets fans hope for the 2019-20 season and beyond.

Ryan dissected the entire preseason game against the Portland Trail Blazers, from the starting minutes of small forward Will Barton to the importance of Jamal Murray learning to let shots fly. Even with Nikola Jokic sitting, there’s lots to talk about with this Nuggets team and many players who will contribute to Denver’s success going forward.
