Nikola Jokic dominated in Monday's 121-113 Game 1 win over the Blazers with 37 points on 11-of-18 shooting while adding nine rebounds, six assists, three steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers.
We could see this performance coming from a mile away as the Blazers are playing without Jusuf Nurkic (leg) and are relying on Enes Kanter who is playing through a shoulder injury. Even if he was healthy, Kanter is no match for Jokic as he bodied his way into easy post buckets while draining 3-for-5 from deep. The Joker left his mark on both sides of the ball and with this matchup we can expect some more big games from him in this series.
