Nikola Jokic is putting the finishing touches on a tremendous breakout season, notching 23 points, six boards, three assists, one steal and one block in 31 minutes.
Jokic shot 8-of-16 in his 31 minutes and continues to squash any memories of his early season slump. Just for some perspective, this is a quiet game by his standards. We hyped him as a second-round guy this season, but that was before the rest of the basketball populace caught on. You might have to take him in round two if you want a share of Big Honey next season. Thankfully, there’s little reason to believe that he won’t deliver.
