The best center in the NBA was at it again on Sunday.
Nikola Jokic continues to be awesome and keep the Denver Nuggets alive in the NBA playoffs. With their season on the line, Jokic led the Nuggets to victory with 34 points and 14 rebounds to go along with seven assists.
Jokic did all that in 40 minutes and shot a highly efficient 13-of-22 from the field, 4-of-6 from beyond the arc. Not only was Jokic great offensively, but he gave the Nuggets a ton of energy on the defensive end of the floor as well.
Thanks to Jokic, the Nuggets will be playing in yet another Game 7 on Tuesday night. If the Nuggets can find a way to beat the Clippers one more time, they will become the first team in NBA history to overcome two 3-1 deficits in the same postseason.
