Will Barton. 5. player. 73. The Denver Nuggets leading scorer over the past week, Will Barton has demonstrated some inefficiency on the offensive end, becoming more of a volume shooter in order to get his points. In Wednesday’s game against the Magic, Will Barton made only 9 of 23 field goal attempts. With Emmanuel Mudiay struggling from the floor recently, and the offense having difficulty as a whole, Barton must continue to become more efficient offensively .. SF. Memphis

86. Karl-Anthony Towns is making a name for himself in his first full year in the league, averaging over 15 points per game and almost 10 rebounds per contest. The former Kentucky standout is a menace in the paint, and features an effective mid-range jumpshot. The Denver Nuggets must devise a way to counter the dynamic Towns, and mitigate his impact on the offensive end. Defensively, Towns is still developing, and the Wolves ranking at 20th in the league in field goal percentage against would indicate that teams have found success taking the ball to the basket against the Minnesota frontcourt.. C. Kentucky. Karl-Anthony Towns. 32. player
