Nikola Jokic played sidekick to Jamal Murray (42 points) on Tuesday in the Nuggets' Game 5 win, dropping 31 points, six rebounds and four assists.
The Nuggets will live to see another day. Murray was lights-out on Tuesday and Jokic was very good, too, setting playoff career-highs in three-pointers made (seven) as well as three-pointers attempted (11). Jokic also played the most minutes (43) that he has seen in the bubble in Orlando so far. The Nuggets obviously need to have all hands on deck as they face elimination. Game 6 is on Thursday.
