Nikola Jokic continued to impress wit 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting, one three, six boards, four assists, one steal, one block and 3-of-3 makes from the foul line in Monday’s loss to the Magic.
Jokic has been a top 35-45 play over the last two weeks and the most stunning part of his fantasy value — other than the mere 26.7 mpg he needed to get that — is his ridiculous 86.7 percent mark from the foul line on 3.8 attempts per game. He’s going to be a fantasy stud for years to come and he is just 21 years old. Emmanuel Mudiay slowed down with 14 points on 5-of-12 shooting, two boards, four assists and two treys, and Will Barton got back on the right side of the shooting ledger with 5-of-8 hits but only 15 points and four rebounds in 32 minutes. Barton deserves a little bit of leash after the season he has had.
