Nikola Jokic made just 5-of-13 for 11 points but added 16 boards, 11 assists and two blocks to record another triple-double as the Nuggets beat the Mavs 91-89 on Saturday.
Jokic only made 1-of-6 from deep and continues to let it fly from long-range. Owners will obviously take the triple-double, but would love to see him dial it back a bit on the 3-point attempts and attack the basket more. He should still provide first-round value for the rest of the season, and the return of Paul Millsap to the four spot will move him back to the five and hopefully closer to the basket.
