Nov. 14 8:18 AM PT9:18 AM MT10:18 AM CT11:18 AM ET16:18 GMT0:18 9:18 AM MST11:18 AM EST20:18 UAE17:1811:18 ET10:18 AM CTNaN:� - Nikola Jokic scored six points Monday, going 2 of 9 from the field, as the Denver Nuggets lost to the Portland Trail Blazers 99-82. Jokic pulled down seven rebounds and dished out three assists, tallying a plus-minus of 0 in his 34:57 on the floor. He added one block and three steals. Jokic went 1 of 4 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Jokic, who came in with double-doubles in seven of his previous 10 games, never found a rhythm. Maybe that had something to do with him facing former Nuggets teammate Jusuf Nurkic. "I know exactly what he wants to do. That's my cheating thing," Nurkic said. "We stopped him really well and didn't allow him to do so much."
Nov. 12 11:34 PM PT12:34 AM MT1:34 AM CT2:34 AM ET7:34 GMT15:34 12:34 AM MST2:34 AM EST11:34 UAE08:342:34 ET1:34 AM CTNaN:� - Nikola Jokic scored 12 points Saturday on 3-of-8 shooting as the Denver Nuggets topped the Orlando Magic 125-107.

Analysis: Though Jokic isn't scoring with the same consistency this month as he was in October, he's still averaging 12.8 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 2.3 steals in six November games. And don't forget that the Serbian sensation is fully capable of going off on a binge like the 41 points he deposited on the Nets back on Tuesday.

Analysis: Jokic notched his second straight double-double and sixth this season even if he didn't come close to the career-high 41 points he scored Tuesday against Brooklyn. There's certainly some inconsistency in Jokic's game, but he's on pace to set career highs in scoring and rebounds so no need for concern.

Analysis: Held to eight points in two of his previous three games, Jokic abused a porous Brooklyn defense inside and out while establishing a career-high scoring total. After a slow start to the season, the standout Serb has returned to elite fantasy territory by averaging 21.1 points, 11.8 rebounds and four assists over his last nine outings. He's also 17 of 36 on 3-point tries during that time frame.

Analysis: Jokic's goose egg comes after he managed just seven points in the season opener. Owners still shouldn't be in panic mode just yet, as he's still contributed 21 rebounds and 15 assists through two games and the shots will eventually start to fall.
