Denver Nuggets forward Zeke Nnaji & Boston Celtics guard Payton Pritchard erupted on Saturday off the bench. 

Nnaji went for 21 points (5-9 3-PT) in a road win vs. the New York Knicks, as Pritchard scored 19 points (5-10 3-PT) in his homecoming blowout victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Both played their college basketball in the Pac-12 Conference (Nnaji- Arizona Wildcats, Pritchard- Oregon Ducks) and also were first round picks in the 2020 draft (Nnaji- #22 pick, Pritchard- #26 pick).
