Could the hype for Nikola Jokic be any higher than it is right now?
Sure, I mean it COULD, but he needed another two rebounds for that. I doubt that he receives the effusive praise from main stream media that he should for this performance, but it was still one heck of a showing. Going toe to toe against Karl-Anthony Towns and the Minnesota Timberwolves, Jokic facilitated offense for the Nuggets throughout the game, made some great moves to score his own points, and dropped some incredible dimes.
Seriously, Jokic put on a show tonight and made some of the best passes I’ve ever seen. Check it out!
