Will Barton of the Denver Nuggets is enjoying a nice season. Averaging a career-high 16 points and six rebounds, the 25-year-old is in contention for the Most Improved Player award this year.

So good times call for celebration. And on his way back to the locker room during halftime on Sunday night against the Indiana Pacers, Barton found someone to celebrate with. A baby.

Perhaps the smallest fan in attendance was lucky enough to score a halftime fist-bump from Barton, who'd score 21 points that night. Credit definitely goes to the man holding the baby, who put that little fist in great position to score some love.

The Nuggets would win by three, moving to 16-25 on the season, while Indiana fell to 22-19. But we all know who the real winner of the night was.
