Nuggets teammate Malik Beasley missed an important three-point shot late in the game. However, Porter managed to get the offensive board and position himself for a tough shot that he managed to convert amid contact from the Warriors defense.
He was pumped, and his teammates were just as pumped for him. After all, it was a great show of athleticism for a player who saw his career get sidelined by an injury that kept him out throughout his rookie season.
Porter Jr. had a solid outing for the Nuggets, finishing with 18 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, and two steals.
