Will Barton entered the starting lineup for Game 4 on Sunday, finishing with 25 points, five rebounds, two dimes, two steals and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes of a season-ending 125-118 loss.
Michael Malone tweaked his approach by placing Barton and Monte Morris (19 points, six assists in 35 minutes) in the starting lineup in favor of Facundo Campazzo and Austin Rivers, but unfortunately for Denver, they were not able to avoid a sweep and are now officially eliminated from championship contention. Barton tried to put the team on his back late after Nikola Jokic got ejected for a Flagrant 2 in the third quarter, but it just wasn’t enough against this incredible Phoenix team. Michael Porter Jr. played well with 20 points, three steals and three triples, while Campazzo sank four of his seven three-point attempts off the bench for 14 points and a dime in 20 minutes.
