Nikola Jokic was at it again today, it just took a little longer for him to get going. After struggling in the first half — scoring just four points — Jokic went to work in the second half and especially in both overtime’s to lead Denver past Utah.

Jokic finished the game with 30 points, 26 of which came in the second half and overtime’s. Not only did Jokic score the ball, but he also finished with a double-double hauling in 11 rebounds to go along with seven assists.
Rudy Gobert fouled out in the first overtime, which really allowed Jokic to go to work. Jokic was scoring the ball at will and constantly finding the open man for an easy shot.
