Nikola Jokic had a solid outing in Wednesday’s loss, delivering 18 points, eight rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer with a 7-of-18 shooting line.
Jokic’s line would’ve been a little better had he taken his finger off the trigger, going just 1-for-8 from beyond the arc. The team (and its franchise center) tends to perform better when he and Mason Plumlee don’t share the floor and hopefully the loss tonight leads to more of those single-big lineups. Either way, it’s hard to complain much when The Joker has the keys to the car in Denver’s offense. He’ll be into the first round by season’s end.
