Nikola Jokić had an impressive game despite the team's loss to the Jazz on Wednesday, finishing with 28 points (10-of-21), 11 rebounds, six assists, one trifecta and two turnovers in 32 minutes.
Jokić wasn't able to do enough to help lead his team to victory but got little help elsewhere on the roster. Jamal Murray was the most disappointing of the starters, scoring just 14 points (6-of-13) with three rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointer and three turnovers. After an impressive 36-point outing in an overtime victory on Monday, fans and fantasy GMs alike expected more from Murray. Both he and Jokić will need to be better if the Nuggets are to beat the Jazz on Friday.
