Nikola Jokic shot just 3-of-8 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line on Saturday and finished with nine points, seven rebounds, eight assists, one block and one 3-pointer in the Nuggets’ 126-117 win over the Cavs.
The Nuggets didn’t need The Joker to handle the Cavs in this one, and it’s good because he had his second 9-point outing in as many games. It could be a bit of fatigue, but we wouldn’t worry too much about it going forward. He’s still one of the better fantasy assets in the league and will find ways to contribute even if he has another bad scoring game or two.
