  • Nuggets' Austin Rivers: Scores 15 in starting role

    Rivers ended with 15 points (6-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four assists, three steals and two rebounds across 35 minutes during Monday's 131-124 victory over the Warriors.

    Rivers joined the starting unit with Will Barton (ankle) unable to play in the contest, and the veteran put together a solid performance that included his highest scoring output since late January. Points had been hard for Rivers to come by of late, as he entered Monday averaging just 4.5 points over 13 contests since the start of February. It's unclear how long Barton will be out, and Rivers could see some additional starts if the shooting guard needs to miss additional contests.
