Nikola Jokic 40 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (1/13/2019)

Jamal Murray walked up to Nikola Jokic in the locker room after the game. “Hey Nik, some of us were gonna hit up the clubs tonight. You in?” “Nah, you guys go ahead,” Nikola answered. “I just want to relax tonight.” Jamal accepted this reasoning without complaint; after all, Nikola often declined to take part…

Nikola Jokic Triple Double 18 Pts/14 Rebs/10 Asts Full Highlights (1/10/2019)

The group of Nuggets players walked through the tunnel back to their locker room, high fives and back-slaps proliferating. At the center of the group, and receiving most of the accolades from his teammates, was Nikola Jokic, who was grinning sheepishly. At that moment, everything seemed perfect: the team had won, the Nuggets were still…

Nikola Jokic Triple Double 29 Pts/11 Rebs/10 Asts/1 Game-Winner Full Highlights (1/8/2019)

One of the things that MVP candidates have to do if they want to be more than just an MVP candidate and be the actual MVP is hit game-winners. No one really remembers random shots from the middle of the second quarter unless they’re REALLY crazy. But everyone remembers game-winners. Before I was an NBA…

Nikola Jokic 24 Points Full Highlights (1/7/2019)

That’s great. Nikola Jokic sits out for the first half of the fourth quarter, the game gets out of hand, he comes in too late to stop the game from getting even more out of hand, and he sits back down after playing for 90 seconds. I understand that Mason Plumlee can do some things…

NIKOLA JOKIC DUNK STREAK ALERT! NIKOLA JOKIC DUNK STREAK ALERT! NIKOLA JOKIC HAS HAD TWO GAMES IN A ROW WHERE HE DUNKED AT LEAST ONE TIME! ALERT ALERT ALERT It is my sincere hope that Nikola Jokic does not dunk for a third game in a row. Not because it wouldn’t be a totally awesome…

Nikola Jokic 26 Points/6 Assists/1 Dunk Full Highlights (1/3/2019)

In the dimly-lit back room of a Denver nightclub, loud swears in a language that was not English filled the air. “You rat, that was my trick!” Nikola Jokic yelled, throwing down his hand of cards in a fit of good-natured anger. “Don’t you know the damn rules?” Nemanja Bjelica took downed his cocktail in…

Nikola Jokic Triple Double 19 Pts/14 Rebs/15 Asts Full Highlights (1/1/2019)

Nikola Jokic just set back Serbo-Turk relations a couple centuries with the way he abused Enes Kanter tonight. I feel like I should double-check my historical facts to see if the Ottoman Empire ever abused Serbia or if Serbia ever abused the Ottomans or if they were even enemies at all or if they had…

Nikola Jokic 23 Points/9 Assists Full Highlights (12/29/2018)

Nikola Jokic, supposedly, has older brothers that used to torment him all the time when they were kids. And I thank them for doing that, because their brotherly bullying has made Jokic the tough dude he is today. But I was thinking: has anyone tried to turn them into basketball players? It doesn’t matter how…

Nikola Jokic 32 Points Full Highlights (12/18/2018)

Nikola Jokic is a great passer, and I’m not implying that he should stop passing, but what we saw here tonight is evidence that his scoring has been being held back by the fact that he needs to get his teammates involved for the team to be successful as a whole. Tonight, someone else stepped…

Nikola Jokic 26 Points Full Highlights (12/16/2018)

This is the kind of game that helps build narratives. On a game-to-game basis, narratives aren’t important, but they sure as heck are when talking about a player’s legacy, or when discussing certain candidates for certain awards. The stage was set: top two teams by record in the league, led by two sorta-MVP-candidate-ish players, Nikola…
