Jokic produced 16 points (6-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and two steals in 36 minutes during Thursday's 114-108 loss to the Lakers.

Jokic battled foul trouble and was adequately contained by both Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard, finishing with a somewhat underwhelming line. After dominating against the Clippers, Jokic has found the going a lot harder against a team that has the ability to throw multiple options at him. The Nuggets find themselves trailing 3-1 yet again and they will look to force a Game 6 with a victory Saturday.
