Update: Barton scored 25 points (6-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 9-12 FT) to go with six rebounds, three assists, and a block over 33 minutes in a 109-105 victory over the Grizzlies on Wednesday.
Analysis: Putting up big numbers off the bench is nothing new for Barton, as the Sixth Man Award candidate has now put up 23 or more points over his last three games. Barton had reached a mild lull until Wednesday's victory, averaging just 10.3 points over a three-game stretch from Mar. 23 to Mar. 27. The Nuggets aren't vying for a playoff spot, but Barton should continue igniting Denver's offense through the remainder of the season.
