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….

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…

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…

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…

Nikola Jokic Career High 43 Points/9 Assists Full Highlights (4/25/2019)

Nikola Jokic slung his bag over his shoulder with a sigh and started the walk from the visitor’s locker room to where the team bus was waiting to take them to the airport. They should have been returning to Denver as heroes; instead, they were going back to their home arena with one more game…

Nikola Jokic 29 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (4/20/2019)

Nikola Jokic exited the Whataburger with a bag of fast-food cheeseburgers in his left hand and a large coke in the other hand. In general, fast food didn’t compare to his favorite burger joints in Denver, but it was a suitable substitute. His brain briefly registered a pang of guilt as it occurred to him…

Nikola Jokic 22 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (4/18/2019)

It is not Nikola Jokic’s fault that the Nuggets are down 2-1 in this series. Maybe it was kinda his fault in game one that the Nuggets lost, but remember, he got a triple-double, and as Russell Westbrook has found out, triple-doubles shield you permanently from major criticism. I will say that Jokic could be…
