|Nikola Jokic: Shines in return to action|
Jokic (COVID-19 protocols) recorded 31 points (12-16 FG, 7-11 FT), 10 assists, nine rebounds, one block and one steal in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 110-108 loss to the Pistons.
The Scoop: The Nuggets suffered a disappointing loss to the Pistons, but Jokic didn't show any signs of rust in his return from a three-game absence while in the NBA's health and safety protocols. Though his averages in points, rebounds and three-pointers are all well down in 2022-23 from both of his back-to-back MVP campaigns, Jokic is at least shooting a career-high 61.8 percent from the field to help compensate for the drop in counting stats.
