• Nikola Jokic
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic put up another big line, this time dropping 24 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and a triple on 9-of-17 from the field on Thursday night.

    Jokic started slow last season as the Nuggets sorted out their pecking order but there's no questions about who runs the show this time around. He looked unstoppable at times tonight and is a real nightmare matchup for the Lakers' personnel. It's a shame Denver went away from The Joker at times in the fourth as the Lakers put up a 19-4 run that salted this one away.
