The Denver Nuggets entered Tuesday’s game against the lowly Washington Wizards on an absolute roll. The team is 12-3 on the season and taking care of a lesser squad.

That was magnified by Will Barton putting up the assist of the NBA season on a dish to Nikola Jokic in the first half. Check this out in all of its glory.

That’s just brilliant stuff. Notice the spin move before the no-look pass? Not necessarily known for dishing out these types of assists, Barton had four helpers in his first 12 minutes of action Tuesday night.

The Nuggets are deep. They are talented. They are going to give top-end Western Conference teams fits moving forward on the season. This play is just the latest example of that.
