1. Joker’s got a wrist problem? Since late Sunday, we’d wondered if Nikola Jokic, who was reportedly nursing a sore right wrist, would be good to go in time for Game 3. If the Serbian Sniper was feeling any ill effects, the dude didn’t show it. Big Honey was Big Money right from the get-go […]
While coach Mike Malone would not commit to whether or not Jokic would play in Game 3 against the Clippers Monday, the Denver Nuggets center went through a full warmup, the team listed him as active and said he would play despite a sprained wrist.
Neither does Kawhi Leonard or Paul George. Or Nikola Jokic. Or the rest of the best players in the league. Everyone is trying to draw fouls and put pressure on the referee. All of them do some flailing (ever watch James Harden?). I don’t know that Luka Doncic or Jokic do it any more than […]

The never-say-die Nuggets pulled off another season-saving comeback — and, after rallying from 19 points down with 22 minutes remaining, they’ll see the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 7 on Tuesday night for a berth in the Western Conference finals.

Jamal Murray took the wheel, netting 27 points in his most assertive outing since that three-game fireworks display against the Jazz. Nikola Jokic dropped 3-point rainbows (26 points), elbows (18 rebounds) and cross-court, Drew Lock dimes (four assists).
