We’re not paying enough attention to Nuggets rookie Nikola Jokic. That’s a byproduct of Denver being a bit off the radar in the NBA these days, but the 20-year-old Serbian is having a very productive season. Jokic is actually leading all first-year players in PER while averaging 19.2 minutes per game… and he’s capable of things like this terrific fadeaway jumper with super high arc in front of Wizards’ Marcin Gortat.
Jokic finished the game vs. Washington with 15 points and 10 rebounds. Not bad.
