In his last thirteen games, 21-year-old Nikola Jokic is averaging 23 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists. He’s established himself as one of the game’s most exciting players, a do-it-all offensive threat. He can pass, shoot and dribble with ease and he’s extremely unselfish.
His full range of skills were on display tonight against the Suns. Jokic shot 12-21 for his 29 points. He added 2 blocks and 1 steal to his 14 rebounds and 8 assists. The Nuggets got the 127-120 win to improve to 20-25.
And after going down late in the fourth quarter with a hip injury, X-rays came back negative. The Nuggets have scheduled an MRI for the morning, but Jokic was seen walking around the locker room after the game.
