3-14 yesterday in a blowout loss while absolutely lost in D.

Though he did double his apg numbers yesterday.

@HPbasketball is that you?!

Jokic, the NBA MVP, was 7/18 with a -32.  Compazzo, the starting PG was 3/10, Monte Morris 5/13. The Nuggets entire team played like crap for much of the game and the Blazers can’t miss.  Markus was 2/6 when the game was within double digits through most of the first half and start of the 3rd, including a big 3 as the second unit made a run.  He missed a bunch of shots in garbage time in the 3rd and 4th which featured Javale McGee 3pt attempts and attempted coast to coast drives and structure-less throwaway iso ball.  Stop acting like Markus shot them out of the game.

Markus has had some issues with defensive spacing but has played some very impressive on ball defense.  For anyone who watched him at Marquette, he’s improved greatly there.  Nobody who covers basketball or writes about it has pointed out or bemoaned his defense. But go off king, continue to try and point out any and all faults for an undrafted rookie who is getting double digit minutes in critical playoff games instead of excitement that one of Marquette’s best ambassadors is doing what most thought he couldn’t

He wasn't lost on D at all. Hes 5'10 and will never be a good defender. But he knows what hes doing.

Stood his ground multiple times on Lillard in the 2nd qtr when it was still a competitive game.

Some people don't understand the NBA position game which is extremely different from the ncaa game specially because of the defensive 3 second rule.

Bingo.  The biggest things I always watch for in younger perimeter NBA guys is do they get completely lost or messed up on switches and can they keep someone in front of them?  Markus hasn’t major issues with either.  He’s played against probably the best scoring backcourt in the NBA and hasn’t ended up as a highlight where Dame or CJ shook him up, nor have they blown by him with regularity.  There was one play specifically on Game 2 where Dame had ball to end the quarter, iso’d on Markus, and threw 2-3 moves before settling for a step back with Markus in his grill.  Murray came running off the bench to congratulate him

We've got a few guys who don't like Markus, and one who doesn't like Jimmy, and none of those people are very good at justifying why they now are down on two guys who did everything asked of them (and more) during their time at Marquette.

The best part will be when more NBA fans come to know & understand what a high character young man Markus is. It’s starting, but will grow.

Agreed. I'm unsure how anyone could possibly have an issue with Markus. Wojo's usage of Markus? Sure. But Markus has been an excellent representative of Marquette since the first day he stepped on campus.

This. Markus played the way his coach wanted him to play. And did it well enough to be an AA. Any complaints about his usage (and they’re legit) belong in Wojo’s inbox.

3 daggers in a couple minute span.

Unfortunately while there was no sign of him coming out of the game naturally, his 3rd foul put him to the bench.

Pulling for the Nuggets to win this one. I think the combination of Nuggets winning and Markus doing his thing will help Markus cause.

It was a miserable call.  But while it’s a flawed stat, for all the talk of his supposed lack of defense or not playing within the team, Markus is gonna finish with the highest +\- on the Nuggets tonight.  There isn’t a significant tick down when he’s in there

Not at all.

He gets picked on with switches at times on D where he simply isnt big enough to stop guys. But he helps a lot on offense with all his running around making guys chase him and it opens up looks.

They were humming on O for a while with him in the game.

Nuggets are literally trying to lose.

Morris(whose been great) with a biffed layup and missed free throw to allow the tie to happen.

Nuggets have blown through their TOs at end of regulation and end of OT to not get half court set up.

Nuggets inexplicable dont intentional foul Lillard.......ever.

Does the rule change also mean he's getting paid more for these playoff days - or are those just "included" in the original 2-way?

We need a league investigation. This is the 1st time a team literally tried to lose a playoff game.  ::)

Markus is making the most of his opportunity, which is awesome. Building a good portfolio of what he can do both offensively and defensively. I hope the powers that be at Denver see fit to renew his contract next year.

I actually now wouldn't be surprised if he gets a solid multi-year offer in the low $millions/year to go to a younger/rebuilding team with more cap space & a shot at much more PT

Markus young age helps in that regard. Would be great if it played out that way.
