Nikola Jokić was the main reason why Denver defeated Portland again (112:103), as the Nuggets had previously won against the Trail Blazers in the same location two days ago. Jokić scored 29 points, grabbed eight rebounds, and made seven assists. Portland’s top player Deandre Ayton finished the game with 27 points. Ayton will surely have nightmares about Jokić, who truly showed him who’s the boss.
The Serbian player first did so with four minutes remaining in the first half.
