The Denver Nuggets have been playing phenomenal basketball as of late and Michael Porter Jr. has played a massive role in that. Wednesday night against the Philadelphia 76ers was no different as Porter scored 27 points on an extremely efficient 11-of-16 shooting from the field, 5-of-7 from beyond the arc.

Not only was Porter playing with confidence on the offensive end of the floor, but he also found a way to impact the game rebounding and defensively. Porter hauled in 12 rebounds to go along with four assists, a steal, and one block.

In the month of March, Porter averaged 20.3 points per game and shot just under 60 percent from the field (59.4) and 53.2 percent from beyond the arc. Porter also averaged 9.1 rebounds per game as he truly is finding his stride and the Nuggets are benefitting because of it.
