Michael Porter: Offense For Me Should Be On Autopilot, I Should Be Focused On Defense

Nov 22, 2022 11:04 AM

Michael Porter Jr. has always been an explosive scorer, but his ability to stay healthy and contribute on defense has been the question of whether he would live up to his five-year, $179 million contract with the Denver Nuggets.

"Offense for me should be on autopilot," Porter said. "I should be focused on the intangibles, the defense, the rebounding, the dirty work. Then that just involves you in the game. If you're struggling on offense and you're also not rebounding or playing defense, then it's like, why is he out there right now?"

Porter is not guaranteed to be on the floor in closing situations as Michael Malone will sometimes use Bruce Brown instead of him.

Jamal Murray Should Play Opening Night

Oct 16, 2022 5:42 PM

Jamal Murray hasn't played in an NBA game since April 12, 2021. After a long year-and-a-half, Murray should make his return on Wednesday night.

Denver Nuggets coach Michael Malone said Murray "should be good to go" when the Nuggets open their season at the Utah Jazz on Wednesday. Murray has been limited recently with a sore hamstring. Most importantly, Murray's left knee feels good, and he's had no issues since camp began.

Murray tore his left ACL in that mid-April 2021 game against the Golden State Warriors. There were points where it looked like Murray might return for Denver last season, but both player and team felt he wasn't quite ready.

Murray rejoins the Nuggets in a season where Denver has considerable expectations. Nikola Jokic is coming off back-to-back MVP seasons, Michael Porter Jr. is healthy again, the Nuggets added a lot of depth this offseason.
