Nikola Jokic scored 19 points on 8-of-11 shooting (including two threes) with 10 rebounds and three assists in just 21 minutes as the Nuggets’ destroyed the Clippers by the score of 123-98 on Saturday.
Jokic is returning No. 6 and 9 fantasy value over the last month in 9- and 8-cat leagues over the last month, averaging 22.2 points to go with 1.1 treys, 10.1 boards, 5.0 assists, 1.7 combined steals and blocks, 62.4 percent field goals and 80.4 percent free throws. The best part is that he’s only averaging 29 mpg in that span. We had him ranked No. 12 and 14 (9/8 cat) in the Bruski 150 and gave you guys explicit instructions to reach for him, which compared to lukewarm top-35 ratings from big box sites should have had you guys in the driver’s seat.
