Nikola Jokic totaled 32 points (13-29 FG, 1-6 3PT, 5-9 FT), twenty rebounds, ten assists, and one block in the Nuggets’ 116-102 loss to the Suns on Friday.
Jokic prepares for a "fight" after the Nuggets' loss to the Suns in Game Three. He posted his strongest effort this series in what seemed to be a one-person "show," considering the starting rotation’s inadequate production. The MVP managed to get better with each game in this series, a trend that could continue tonight but hopefully with a different outcome. Although we may reap significant benefit from what could be an admirable "last-stand," by the "Joker" it could be an unfortunate waste should the team not step up and do what it takes to "fight" another day.
