Nikola Jokic has come up clutch in back-to-back games to lead the Nuggets to victory.

NBA: Denver Nuggets at Minnesota Timberwolves David Berding-USA TODAY Sports

Nikola Jokic was at it again Sunday afternoon as he made the game winning shot in overtime to lead the Nuggets to victory. Denver was able to escape Minnesota with a 100-98 victory as Jokic came to the rescue yet again.

After the Nuggets blew a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter, Denver played a much better overtime period, which was capped off by Jokic’s fade away jumper. Jokic finished the game with 20 points on 9-of-23 shooting from the field to go along with seven assists and six rebounds.

On the season, Jokic is now averaging 16.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, and six assists per game. Jokic is leading the Nuggets in rebounding and assists per game and is only trailing Jamal Murray (18.8) in points.
