Nuggets Numbers - Nikola Jokic says Merry Christmas to Serbia

A career high 47 points from Nikola Jokic paces this week’s Nuggets Numbers episode

The Denver Nuggets desperately needed a victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night, and the best way for Nikola Jokic to make that happen was to simply dominate.

Dominate he did, as the Serbian center scored 47 points, a career high, on Serbia’s Christmas day, a wonderful gift to Jokic’s countrymen and women. He showcased exactly why he’s the best center in the NBA and why the bar for his performance has just been increased.

In this episode, I discuss Jokic’s amazing night, along with the rest of the Denver-Atlanta game, including some worrisome defense once again. Finally, I do a mini Q&A from questions I received on Twitter concerning Jokic, Paul Millsap, and Denver’s defense at large.

Enjoy!
