Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Gets in foul trouble Saturday
Jokic pitched in 16 points (7-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one block over 22 minutes in Saturday's 109-105 loss to the Rockets.
Jokic ran into foul trouble early, limiting his playing time significantly. The 22-year-old big man did manage to still salvage the night with some fourth-quarter scoring and posted his ninth straight double-digit point total. Jokic put up double-digit shot attempts for a ninth consecutive game as well, and his reduced output Saturday can be chalked up to his issues with the ref's whistle.
