Jokic finished with 29 points (11-26 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 13 rebounds, four blocks, and two assists in 42 minutes during Sunday's 100-96 loss to the Trail Blazers. Jokic was unable to carry his team to victory Sunday despite another superb all-around performance. Unfortunately for the Nuggets, both Paul Millsap and Jamal Murray struggled from the field, both shooting under 25 percent. It was certainly not the end Jokic and the Nuggets would have been hoping for but they remain one of the youngest playing units in the NBA and things are absolutely trending in the right direction. From a personal perspective, Jokic has established himself as arguably the best big man in the league and will be a dominant force for many years to come, in both reality and fantasy.
Jokic supplied 29 points (10-15 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 12 rebounds and eight assists across 37 minutes during the Nuggets' 119-108 loss to the Trail Blazers in Game 6 of their Western Conference semifinal-round playoff series Thursday. Jokic unsurprisingly stepped up as the team leader in scoring and rebounding on the night, continuing his spectacular series by marking his fifth consecutive game with at least a double-double. The fifth-year big man has essentially been unstoppable from anywhere he's shot on the floor, and only the referee's whistle was able to get the best of him Thursday. While foul trouble always looms as a possibility for Jokic, he's naturally an elite fantasy asset heading into Sunday's critical Game 7 on his home floor.
Jokic managed 25 points (10-18 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 19 rebounds and six assists across 34 minutes during the Nuggets' 124-98 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 5 of their Western Conference semifinal-round playoff series Tuesday. The ultra-talented big man paced the Nuggets in both scoring and rebounding on the night, turning in a dominating performance in conjunction with frontcourt mate Paul Millsap. Jokic's rebound tally actually tied a postseason franchise record, and he now has a double-double at minimum in four consecutive contests. Jokic will look to continue serving as a focal point of Denver's offensive attack as they look to clinch the series during Game 6 on Thursday.
Jokic contributed 21 points (8-15 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 12 rebounds, 11 assists and two steals in 38 minutes Sunday in the Nuggets' 116-112 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 4. Jokic helped the Nuggets even the series at two games apiece on the strength of his second consecutive triple-double and fourth of the postseason. The performance was rendered more impressive by the fact that Jokic returned to action just two days after logging 65 minutes in a quadruple-overtime loss in Game 3. That minutes total was just two shy of the all-time postseason record.
Jokic supplied 33 points (13-25 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 18 rebounds, 14 assists, two blocks and one steal across 65 minutes during the Nuggets' 140-137 quadruple-overtime loss to the Trail Blazers in Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal-round series Friday. Jokic's final line speaks to how dominant a performance he managed, but ironically, he failed to come through at a critical moment. The big man missed the first of two free throws with 5.6 seconds remaining in the fourth overtime, leaving Denver a a point short of the Trail Blazers at the time. The All-Star center did enjoy another successful night from distance, and he's now drained seven of 13 attempts from behind the arc over the first three games of the series. Jokic's minutes load was a game-high figure and likely leaves him exhausted with a short turnaround on tap for Game 4 on Sunday.
