Nikola Jokic hits game-winner at buzzerMarch 14, 2019 | 10:20 PM
Nikola Jokic hit his first game-winning shot at the buzzer during a 100-99 victory over the Mavs on Thursday, scoring 11 points with 14 rebounds, eight assists, one block and two turnovers in 30 minutes.
He didn't make a field goal until the fourth quarter and hit an off-balanced shot for the win. The Nuggets offense was able to get back on track on Tuesday with 133 points, but they did struggle today besides Paul Millsap. Earlier this week, coach Mike Malone made it clear how he wants the offense to get back on track. "Give him the ball. We have to give him the ball more," Malone said about Jokic. "Some of the shots that we take are awful shots. I think in that game, we had 30 possessions where we had either zero passes or one-pass shots and they were bad shots. If you want to help Nikola out, give him the ball." The Nuggets will live and die by Jokic, and fantasy owners should have high hopes with his great schedule the rest of the way.
