After struggling in the Nuggets first game in the bubble, Michael Porter Jr. bounced back in a big way Monday with arguably the best game of his young NBA career. Porter scored 37 points on a near perfect 12-of-16 shooting from the field to go along with 12 rebounds.

Points was not the only career-high Porter set as he played 43 minutes, which is 14 minutes past his previous best. When the Nuggets needed a bucket, Porter was there and he single handily kept the Nuggets in the game for four quarters. Porter was 4-of-6 from behind the arc, which was over 50 percent of the Nuggets (7-of-25) production from beyond the arc.

Porter was dominant in all facets of the game and gave Nuggets fans a glimpse of what they can look forward to in the future. From scoring the basketball to dominating on the glass, Porter made his presence known for all 43 of his minutes.
