Jamal Murray shared his thoughts on the performance of his teammate in the Denver Nuggets Michael Porter Jr. in the playoffs.

Porter Jr. had 14 points (on 3-for-9 shooting, one of six 3-point attempts), 10 rebounds and four assists in Game 1 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers (114-126).

“I just think his patience right now. He might not touch it every single time on the court, but when he gets a good look we know he’s gonna put it up and most likely make it.

His rebounding is incredible. He’s got a really good nose for the ball, shot blocking’s there, so all his instincts are there. Now it’s just on the offense part. I think he’s gonna be a big factor in this series against the Lakers,” Murray told reporters on Saturday.

Game 2 between the Lakers and the Nuggets is on Sunday.
