• Nikola Jokic
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic scored 16 points on 6-of-13 shooting with seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and two triples in Thursday's Game 4 against the Lakers.

    Jokic was stifled in the first part of the game as Dwight Howard drew the start and imposed his physicality early. The Joker is known for shying away from shot attempts when things aren't going easy for him, but he stepped up a bit in the second half and started to hit some open 3s to open up the offense for the Nuggets. Expect him to come out much more aggressive in Game 5 now that he can prepare for Howard in the starting lineup.
