Nikola Jokic scored 27 points on 10-of-12 shooting (7-of-7 FTs) with 11 rebounds, four assists and one block in 26 minutes off the bench in Monday’s blowout loss to the Mavs.
This was a shot across the bow at all of the bust questions and he is tucked nicely into the top-75 this year despite playing in a way-less-than-ideal situation and averaging just 23.8 mpg. Once the Nuggets rid themselves of a chucker or two and starts running offense through Jokic as they so clearly should, that’s when the real fun begins. Hopefully you maintained proper levels of patience and better yet, hopefully you went out there and plundered.
