Nicolas Batum hit just 4-of-9 shots, but filled the stat sheet with 10 points, six rebounds, nine assists, five steals, three blocks and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes of Wednesday's loss to the Nuggets.

Batum's wrist injury appears to finally be behind him, and while he was likely on the bench in weekly leagues with just two games, the Blazers go 4-3-5-3-4 over the next five weeks, meaning he should be a fixture in all lineups going forward. Batum is the only player to record at least 10 points, nine dimes, five steals and three blocks in a game this season, and after tonight's gem, he's done it twice.
