Nikola Jokic After 47-Point Game: 'I'm Going To Score When We Need It' 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Feb 1, 2021 4:24 am

Nikola Jokic matched a career-high 47 points in the Denver Nuggets' 128-117 win over the Utah Jazz.


The win also snapped the Jazz's 11-game win streak.


"I'm going to score when we need it. It's just a game. The main thing is just win the game. I'm going to score however much I need just to win the game," said Jokic after the game. 


The Nuggets shot 88.2% from the three-point line in the first half, the highest 3-point field goal in a half over the past 20 seasons.


Will Barton said he tried to convince Jokic to hit the 50-point mark.


"You know him; he don't care about that kind of stuff. He's just playing basketball, being aggressive, being who he is. We definitely wanted the big fella to get 5-0 tonight."
