Barton is 12th in the NBA in fourth-quarter scoring at 6 points per game, just behind the Celtics’ Isaiah Thomas. Malone has given Barton the chance to be a down-the-stretch scorer, and it has thrust him into the conversation about Sixth Man of the Year. “With me, it’s about trying to gain respect, it’s not about awards or anything like that,” he said. “As long as I go on the court, the opposing team knows [playing against] Will Barton, ‘I’m going to be in for a long night. That guy is going to keep playing hard all game.’ So that’s the only thing that matters to me. “I take pride in being a crunch-time player and a player that is a closer. Fourth quarter, that is when the game matters the most. That’s when it’s man time.”
