Rookies Emmanuel Mudiay and Devon Booker traded career-high performances in Denver ending in a Nuggets win over Phoenix. Mudiay notched 30 points while fellow rookie Booker dropped 35 points.
“I just tried to stay aggressive,” Mudiay said. “We kind of went into a slump (in the game) and I was just trying to help my team make winning plays. Coach had confidence in me. He’s been telling me to stay aggressive, so that’s what I did.”
