Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Double-doubles in tough loss

Jokic finished with 16 points (7-17 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 14 rebounds, seven assists, and one steal in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 97-90 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Jokic ended with a double-double Wednesday but was certainly not at his best in the tough home loss. The fact his 16 points represent a team-high give a clear indication that a number of players were struggling. Enes Kanter was much improved on the defensive end and likely impacted Jokic's impact. Game 3 will be in Portland on Friday and the Nuggets are going to have to turn things around quickly as they look to regain home court.
