Nikola Jokic droped 41 points on 16-of-25 shooting (adding four triples) with 12 rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks in Tuesday’s 112-104 win over the Nets.
Jokic was simply dominant tonight. He was the focal point of the Nuggets offense and chipped in considerably on the defensive end as well. He is sitting just outside the top-10 on the season, and should continue to provide elite value for owners going forward. His assists have seen a slight dip this season, but he has appeared passive as a facilitator at times. That should likely normalize as the Nuggets adjust with Paul Millsap now in the lineup.
