Michael Porter Jr.'s NBA debut was a long time coming, so it was only natural that Denver Nuggets fans had to wait a little more to see him. The 14th overall pick in the 2018 NBA draft had to wait until the final five minutes of the third quarter to see the floor in the Nuggets' preseason opener against the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday, but once he was in, he looked about what you should have hoped for a former top talent beset with injuries. His first points were a thing of beauty, nailing a step-back jumper just in front of the arc.
The Scoop: None.
