Jokic scored 21 points (9-11 FG. 2-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT) while adding seven rebounds and five assists in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 135-102 win over the Bulls. In a closer game, Jokic would likely have seen a bigger workload and put up a monster line, but he was still plenty productive in his three quarters of action. The 23-year-old is averaging 23.4 points, 10.6 boards, 5.9 assists, 2.3 three-pointers, 1.6 steals and 0.8 blocks over the last eight games, and Jokic should remain locked in over the final weeks of the season as the Nuggets try to climb back into a playoff spot.
Jokic finished with 34 points (12-21 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 15 rebounds, three assists and one steal in 47 minutes during Monday's 149-141 loss to Miami. Jokic scored a game-high 34 points but it wasn't enough as the Nuggets fell to another tough loss. Jokic has been simply outstanding for the Nuggets despite the team losing some games they probably should have won. Over the last two games, Jokic has recorded a total of five assists, uncharacteristically low for the Serbian. The Nuggets travel to Chicago to face the Bulls in what is a must-win game on Wednesday.
Jokic scored 17 points (5-15 FG, 1-4 3PT, 6-8 FT) to go with 12 rebounds, two assists, four steals and two blocks in 35 minutes during Saturday's 101-94 loss to Memphis. In his last six games, Jokic has collected two triple-doubles as well as two double-doubles. The center is averaging 22.0 points, 10.5 rebounds and 6.5 assists during this span. For the season, Jokic is not only scoring in bunches (17.2 points/game), he is dishing out the assists as well. He has hit double figures in assists in 10 games this season en route to eight triple-doubles. In fact, Jokic has had 10-plus assists in five of his last 14 games, leading to five of his triple-doubles. As of late, Jokic is not only a low-post scorer and dominating rebounder. He is also creating scoring opportunities for the rest of the Nuggets' offense.
Jokic had 23 points (8-15 FG, 205 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 12 rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and three blocks in 37 minutes during Thursday's 120-113 victory over Detroit. Jokic was tremendous Thursday, delivering arguably his most well-rounded line of the season. The triple-double was nice but it was on the defensive end where he excelled. The Nuggets need to win at all costs moving forward and Jokic is going to be the primary focus. He could be in line for a lighter workload against the Grizzlies on Saturday, given the recent form of the latter.
Jokic produced 15 points (5-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), nine rebounds, five assists and one steal across 27 minutes in Tuesday's 112-103 loss to the Lakers. The third-year big man fell a rebound short of hitting at least a double-double for the third time in four games, yet his final line was still rock-solid. Jokic carries triple-double upside each time he steps on the court, but his usage on the offensive end does tend to go through its fair share of fluctuations, as evidenced by the fact he's now put up single-digit shot attempts in four of seven March contests. Teammate Wilson Chandler's boost in involvement since shortly before the All-Star break is likely also having a degree of effect on Jokic's overall production, yet he's still posting impressive averages of 16.3 points, 9.1 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 1.1 steals across seven games in the current month.
