Nikola Jokic tantalized owners with a fat stat line in just 19 minutes of action in the Nuggets’ 109-108 loss to the Hawks on Friday, scoring eight points on 3-of-4 shooting with seven rebounds, six assists, three blocks and one trey.
Jokic fouled out tonight and is committing some DeMarcus Cousins-level fouls in the backcourt. It’s strange to see somebody with such great basketball vision be so completely terrible with the fouling. Many of them are frustration fouls that appear to be intentional with no care that it has a negative impact on the game. That should work itself out soon and as you can see he’s locked and loaded for owners, bring back third round value over the last month in just 25 mpg. There is still time to buy low while people can’t add that up.
