Will Barton was the closest help he got, tallying not far behind with 24 points, six rebounds and five assists. Summing up, the double-digit scorers were Monte Morris and rookie Nah’Shon Hyland doing 10 points each. Aaron Gordon had a sub-par night while Jamal Murray is still not expected to play soon.
