Nikola double-doubled on Wednesday with 14 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists in a 113-97 loss to the Mavs.
The Joker shot 7-of-10 from the field but wasn't able to lead the Nuggets to a win. He also turned the ball over five times, but it's easy to overlook that given the production in rebounds and assists.

Jokic is making a bid for fantasy MVP (again) and will win a lot of managers fantasy championships here in the coming weeks. He is averaging 24 points, almost 11 rebounds and seven assists over the last two months, good enough for a top-5 fantasy ranking during that period. Jokic was fresh off a triple-double on Sunday and Tuesday's game could realistically be considered an off night for the Serbian magician. He should torch the lowly Hornets and their weak interior defense on Thursday in a bounce back effort.

Jokic nearly double-doubled with his nine boards and was also able to chip in two assists and one steal to the box score. This was not par for his top-10 trend lately, but was more a testament to how good the Clippers are than how poor the Nuggets play. Jokic will surely bounce back with a stellar top-10 worthy line sooner rather than later.

The field goal percentage and turnovers weren't great, but you'll live with that given how juicy the rest of this stat line was. The Joker is inside the top-10 on the season and is a top-5 player over the past month. He shouldn't fall outside the top-10 ROS and his slow start is far behind him.
