It was a career night for Monte Morris at Ball Arena on Tuesday night and it couldn't have arrived at a better time. Morris played 41 minutes off the bench pouring in a career-high 28 points on 7-of-18 shooting from the field, 4-of-9 from beyond the three-point line, and 10-of-11 from the free-throw line.

Morris played a massive role in the Nuggets victory as he was huge down the stretch in regulation and in both overtimes. Not only did he score the ball, but Morris also dished out five assists and hauled in three rebounds in the win. He did all that while committing zero turnovers as Morris truly was remarkable in Game 5.
