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.
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.
Jokic finished with 37 points (11-18 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 12-12 FT), nine rebounds, six assists, three steals, and two blocks in 41 minutes during Monday's 121-113 victory over the Trail Blazers.
Jokic was fantastic for the Nuggets as they hit the floor running, taking Game 1 of the Western Conference Semi-Finals, 121-to-113. Jokic did a bit of everything in the victory, leading the team with 37 points on 11-of-18 shooting, also hitting all 12 of his free-throws. His star continues to rise and efforts such as this could see the Nuggets advance to the Western Conference finals. Game 2 will be on Wednesday and Jokic will need to remain aggressive as they look to secure a 2-0 series lead.
Jokic finished with 21 points (9-26 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 15 rebounds, 10 assists, three blocks, and one steal in 43 minutes during Saturday's 90-86 victory over the Spurs.
Jokic struggled from the field Saturday but was still able to produce across the board as the Nuggets held off the Spurs, advancing to the second round of the playoffs for the first time in 10 years. Jokic has been far more aggressive on the offensive end, especially over the past two games where he has attempted a combined 56 shots. The Nuggets are going to need a lot more scoring from Jokic given they really only have two reliable scorers. They will face the Trail Blazers for the right to advance to the Conference Finals, a series that could certainly provide plenty of highlights.
Jokic finished with 43 points (19-30 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 12 rebounds, nine assists, two steals, and one block in 38 minutes during Thursday's 120-103 loss to the Spurs.
Jokic went off for a career-high 43 points Thursday, hitting 19-of-30 from the field in what was a devastating loss. The 43 points was also a franchise playoff record for most points scored. Milestones aside, the Nuggets will now have to return home for Game 7, something they would have certainly liked to have avoided. The home court will work in their favor but the Spurs have already shown the ability to win on the road and Jokic will need to be at his best once again to ensure safe passage to the second round.
Jokic recorded 16 points (5-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds, eight assists, two steals, and one block in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 108-90 Game 5 win over the Spurs.
Jokic filled up the stat sheet yet again and likely would've accumulated more minutes (and thus more counting stats) had the score been a bit closer down the stretch. Jokic repeatedly found cutters and created good looks galore for himself and others, and he'll try to help his team close out the series during Thursday's Game 6.
Jokic produced 29 points (10-22 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 12 rebounds, and eight assists in 39 minutes during Saturday's 117-103 Game 4 win over the Spurs.
Jokic was extremely aggressive offensively, as he relentlessly attacked when the Spurs chose not to send help. Despite San Antonio's apparent strategy to force Jokic into a scoring role, he finished just two dimes shy of a triple-double. With the series shifting to Denver for Tuesday's Game 5, Jokic will look to deliver another stellar performance and maintain home-court advantage.
Jokic totaled 22 points (8-14 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds and seven assists over 32 minutes in the Nuggets' loss to the Spurs on Thursday.
Jokic produced yet another big stat line in Thursday's loss, though the Nuggets now face a 2-1 series deficit to the Spurs. He's averaging a near triple-double in the playoffs, with 17.7 points, 11.7 rebounds and 9.7 assists per game.
Jokic produced 21 points (7-15 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 13 rebounds, eight assists, and two steals in 39 minutes during Tuesday's 114-105 Game 2 win over the Spurs.
Jokic delivered an incredible performance, falling just two dimes shy of a triple-double while upping his aggressiveness as a scorer. It's not unusual for opposing teams to try to force Jokic to score rather than set up his teammates, but the big man remains an elite initiator with an innate ability to find the open man.
Jokic ended with 10 points (4-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 14 rebounds, 14 assists, and one steal in 36 minutes during Saturday's 101-96 loss to the Spurs.
Jokic attempted just nine field-goals, ending with 10 points in 36 minutes. While the offense was basically non-existent, he added 14 rebounds and 14 assists, finishing with a triple-double. The Nuggets were certainly far from their best in the loss and will need to get things turned around quickly if they are to remain in the playoffs. Although it was only one game, Jokic needs to take more control, especially on the offensive end, as the Nuggets look to get their first playoff victory in quite some time.
Jokic finished with 29 points (13-26 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 14 rebounds, three steals, and two assists in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 99-95 victory over the Timberwolves.
Jokic and the Nuggets were able to exact revenge after the Timberwolves knocked them out of the playoff race last season. The victory ensured the Nuggets finished with the second-best record in the Western Conference, earning them a first-round playoff showdown with Spurs. After a disaster the previous night in a loss to the Jazz, Jokic bounced back with a stellar all-around effort, and the 26 shot attempts were the second-most he has taken in a game this season. He appears primed and ready to go as the Nuggets look to go deep into the playoffs, capping off what has been a thoroughly successful season.
Jokic had just two points, five rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 16 minutes during Tuesday's 118-108 loss to the Jazz.
Jokic was back in the starting lineup Tuesday after missing the previous game due to rest. Perhaps the rest was unfounded as he turned in arguably his worst game of the season before fouling out after just 16 minutes. The loss means the Nuggets will need to win their final game to ensure they maintain the two seed in the Western Conference. For his owners, hopefully, that means he will be on the court Wednesday and will certainly be looking to bounce back after this pathetic performance.
Jokic (rest) will play and start in Tuesday's game against the Jazz, Katy Winge of Altitude TV reports.
Jokic got the night off Sunday in order to get some extra rest before the start of the playoffs. The big man will now return for the final playoff push, which will send Mason Plumlee back to his role off the bench.
Jokic will sit out for rest Sunday against the Trail Blazers.
With the playoffs close, coach Michael Malone will opt to give the star big man the night off. Mason Plumlee figures to handle the bulk of the minutes at center.
Jokic registered 22 points (9-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 13 rebounds, nine assists, two steals and one block across 37 minutes in the Nuggets' 119-110 win over the Trail Blazers on Friday.
Jokic has scored 20 points or more in four of the last five games, double-doubling in each. He fell just an assist shy of a triple-double in each of the last two games as well, so his production is as robust as ever as the regular season winds down. Factoring in Friday's production, Jokic is averaging 19.6 points, 11.8 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 1.8 steals across 31.6 minutes over the last five games.
Jokic totaled 20 points (9-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 11 rebounds and nine assists across 29 minutes in the Nuggets' 113-85 win over the Spurs on Wednesday.
Jokic exploded for team-high point and rebound totals in the easy victory. The versatile big man has double-doubled in three of his past four games, and his 90.0 percent success rate from the field Wednesday was his highest since the second game of the season Oct. 20. With the Nuggets still capable of reaching the top seed, Jokic should continue seeing a normal allotment of minutes for what remains of the regular season.
