His stats are by far the best on the team


Granted that’s not saying much for a team that plays close to zero defense. I don’t care who he’s guarding. The worse guard on the floor at any given time on any nba team is still one of the best guards in the world.

It’s a team game of course, and the Nuggets as a team play better defense when he’s on the court than when he’s off. 102 points per 100 possessions given up with him playing the point, vs 107 with Morris and 110 with Murray.

Maybe it’s because like you say he’s the worst defender on the team and the other 4 step their games up when he’s on the court, but that seems pretty unlikely. Maybe the defensive scheme changes when he’s on, and works better.
