While the injury was the bigger story, Nikola Jokic happened to have an excellent game as well.

NBA: Phoenix Suns at Denver Nuggets Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

The mood at Pepsi Center was one of elation followed by horror. Nikola Jokic was having another amazing game before going down to the floor with a scary hip injury. After the fact, X-rays have come out negative, and pending an MRI, it looks like the Nuggets have dodged a bullet here. Jokic was on fire again today against the Phoenix Suns, posting 29 points, 14 rebounds, and 8 assists on efficient numbers. He truly has become the alpha dog of this team, and it was most evident when the entire team came to the other side of the floor to check on the Joker while he was down. Hopefully, Jokic bounces back quickly and continues to put up excellent numbers. The Nuggets need him to keep their success going.
