The Denver Nuggets have won seven of their last eight games and Michael Porter Jr. has played a massive role in that. Wednesday nights game against the Charlotte Hornets was no different as Porter scored 28 points and hauled in 13 rebounds as the Nuggets cruised to a 129-104 victory.

Porter did all that in just 28 minutes of game time and was in attack mode from the moment the ball was tipped. Not only did he score the ball well, but he did it efficiently as Porter shot 11-of-17 from the field and 3-of-6 from beyond the three-point line. Not to mention, Porter also did the “Steph Curry spin” on this last three of the night. Absolute savage.

Wednesday’s game marked Porter’s fifth straight game with 20+ points as he’s really starting to find his rhythm playing next to Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic. After some growing pains to begin the season, the Nuggets big three is finally clicking on all cylinders and showing the rest of the NBA why they are a force to be reckoned with.
