This is a classic playground move. Barton saw an opportunity to bounce the ball off Martin and he took full advantage of it.
Barton entered Thursday averaging 14.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists for the Nuggets, who are looking to go on another deep playoff run this season. In last year’s playoffs, the Nuggets lost to the Portland Trail Blazers in the second round in seven games.
The Nuggets wound up defeating the Hornets by a final score of 114-112. Barton played 34 minutes and finished with 16 points, seven rebounds and two assists.
