Nikola Jokic put up another triple-double in Saturday's 90-86, Game 7 win over the Spurs with 21 points, 15 rebounds, 10 assists, a steal, three blocks and no turnovers in 43 minutes.
A line like that means you can probably forgive his subpar 9-of-26 mark from the field. Jokic triple-doubled in the opening game of this series (10-14-14) but was right on the doorstep in the other five before tonight with 21-13-8 in Game 2, 22-8-7 in Game 3, 29-12-8, in Game 4 16-11-8 in Game 5 and 43-12-9 in Game 6. He draws a matchup with Enes Kanter in round two, and with his shoulder injury and historical issues defending in space, we should see a few more monstrous performances before the book closes on Jokic's outstanding season.
