Nikola Jokic was limited to 30 minutes in Saturday’s loss to the Lakers, posting a line of 20 points (9-of-16 FGs, 1-of-1 FTs), seven rebounds, five assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.
Jokic picked up two fouls within the first six minutes of Game 5, remaining on the bench for the rest of the quarter as a result. And he would only play eight minutes in the first half due to the foul trouble, which once again limited his impact. Jokic will undoubtedly have first-round value in all formats next season, but he’ll need to get better at avoiding silly fouls. Jamal Murray added 19 points, four rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 43 minutes, with a sore right knee giving him some trouble in the second half. Sep 27 12:07 am (EST)
