Nikola Jokic 29 Points/4 Blocks Full Highlights (5/12/2019)

The hugs had been exchanged. The tears had been shed. The realizations had been accepted: there would be no more basketball for this Nuggets team. Their dream of a championship, which had been faint at the outset of the season but had grown brighter as the wins rolled in, was extinguished. One player stayed back…

Nikola Jokic 29 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (5/9/2019)

In the immortal words of Zaza Pachulia: “Game Seven! GAME SEVOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!”. Combine this upcoming game seven with the other game seven that is for sure happening (Sixers-Raptors) and the potential game seven that will probably happen (Warriors-Rockets) and your pal DownToBuck is not going to be a happy camper. That’s too much pressure for me….

Paul Millsap 24 Points Full Highlights (5/7/2019)

Paul “Thirty Million Dollars for Twelve Points Per Game” Millsap continues to prove his worth in these playoffs, which really upsets me because he is supposed to be the guy whose contract and redundant skillset is preventing the Nuggets from reaching their full potential. In this one, he scored nineteen points in the first half,…

Nikola Jokic 25 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (5/7/2019)

We’re never going to get to see it, but after watching Meyers Leonard/Zach Collins pathetically try to start something with Nikola Jokic, I couldn’t help but wonder: what would happen if Jokic was finally pushed over the edge, wound up, and punched somebody? The repercussions would be serious, but that’s not what I’m caring about…

Paul Millsap 21 Points Full Highlights (5/5/2019)

My narrative that “Paul Millsap Ruined the Nuggets” would have a lot more oomph behind it if the Nuggets had lost this game. Then I would unironically be able to say that “Millsap was a me-first cancer, as evidenced by his zero assists” and “Millsap can’t coexist with Nikola Jokic” and “Millsap’s minutes should be…

Nikola Jokic Triple Double 21 Pts/12 Rebs/11 Asts Full Highlights (5/5/2019)

Nikola Jokic was extremely grateful that the Nuggets’ team plane had seats that were not only large enough to accommodate the size of NBA players, but were also able to be fully reclined. Nikola was currently taking advantage of that feature to its fullest. In addition, he had the air conditioning nozzles turned up to…

Will Barton 22 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (5/3/2019)

If I was a fan of one of the teams in this game, I literally would not have been able to handle the intensity. Death would’ve been my fate, surely. I barely could handle it as it was; my heart was beating out of my chest for the entire duration of the four overtimes. My…

Nikola Jokic Triple Double 33 Pts/18 Rebs/14 Asts/65 Minutes Full Highlights (5/3/2019)

According to basketball-reference, only five players in NBA history have played more minutes in a single game than Nikola Jokic did in this one (which was 65, in case the title of this vid was too long and you couldn’t manage to get to the end of it). Everyone should already know about that Supersonics-Bucks…

Nikola Jokic 37 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (4/29/2019)

I think it’s fair to say that Nikola Jokic has been the best player of the playoffs so far. The so-called “playoffs MVP”, which should absolutely be an award. Maybe you could make an argument for Kawhi Leonard, but recency bias is a real thing, and that dude only scored 35 tonight compared to Jokic’s…

Nikola Jokic Triple Double 21 Pts/15 Rebs/10 Asts Full Highlights (4/27/2019)

The last time the Nuggets were in the playoffs, George Karl was the coach, Masai Ujiri was the GM, and their best scorer, Ty Lawson, averaged 16 points per game, and their best feature was the incredible lob chemistry between Andre Miller and JaVale McGee. That team lost in the first round to the Warriors…
