Nikola Jokic shot just 5-of-15 on Saturday night but still turned in a gem with 17 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, a 3-pointer, four steals and two blocks.
Unfortunately, Denver dropped an ugly game to the terrible Grizzlies in the midst of a big playoff chase. They really missed Gary Harris in this one and came out flat, falling behind by 17 after the first quarter and failing to recover despite a few big pushes late. The Joker might have to take on more of a scoring load sans Harris, and owners should continue to treat him as a first-round stud. If the Nuggets want to make the postseason it’ll be on the back of Jokic.
