How nice is it to have #1 back in the lineup?

NBA: Denver Nuggets at Dallas Mavericks Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Michael Porter Jr. was absolutely incredible in the Denver Nuggets 117-113 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night. Not only did Porter score a team-high 30 points on 10-of-18 shooting from the field, 6-of-10 from three, but he essentially carried the Nuggets to victory after Jamal Murray was ejected in the third quarter.

Porter scored 18 of his 30 points in the second half alone to go along with eight rebounds. Not only was Porter scoring at will, but he was making big time shots to put the game out of reach for the Mavericks.

In just his third game back after missing almost a month due to health and safety protocols, Porter has not missed a beat and continues to remind everyone just how prolific a player he could be.
