Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic doesn’t miss a beat, provides Bones Hyland’s superb support

Nikola Jokic didn’t take the bait during MVP’s reign, even though he was sitting there for him.

After recording a first-half double-double in his first real game in months, Jokic didn’t want to add to his casual timing. When asked if he planned to skip next year’s training camp, Joker laughed.

“We’ll see, brother,” Jokic said after missing the team’s training camp in San Diego to be with his wife for the birth of their daughter.

Jokic rejoined the Nuggets last Sunday, went through a normal pre-game workout before Monday’s game in Los Angeles, practiced with the team on Tuesday and made his debut against the Warriors on Wednesday night. He picked up Golden State for 17 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocks, while his teammates dropped a few more assists on the court.

The last time we saw Jokic, he was exhausted and exhausted in the second-round series finale against the Denver Suns. On Wednesday, he was his normal flair, working elbows, directing traffic with his eyes and controlling Denver’s offense as his central hub.

With the Jokers available, it was no surprise that the Nuggets logged 28 assists versus Golden State, which was far more encouraging than the 20 they registered against the Clippers on Monday. With that, even without Jamal Murray or Michael Porter Jr. available due to injury, the offense flowed naturally.

Nuggets coach Michael Malone said, “Obviously, a lot is expected of you when you’re the current MVP, and he got out there and picked up just like he never missed a beat.” “Moving the ball, scoring in the post, making plays, and I thought he had some good defensive assets as well.”
