Video: Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic throws alley-oop off the backboard to himself

Nikola Jokic

When your team is winning, it doesn’t hurt to at least have once fancy play every game, right? Well, Denver NuggetsNikola Jokic has had a couple of stellar plays during their 121-100 win against the Los Angeles Clippers.

He threw an awesome full-court pass to Jamal Murray during the third period, and he also did this.

Jokic is so good at making passes that he sometimes becomes the recipient of his own otherworldy dimes.

He finished the game with another triple-double, scoring 18 points, grabbing 12 boards, and dishing out 10 assists. The Nuggets, who have won 28 of their 40 games, remain atop of the Western Conference standings while the Clippers’ three-game winning streak is snapped. They are now tied with the Portland Trailblazers for the fourth-best record in the West at 25-17.

The Nuggets used a balanced attack to beat the Clips, with six players in double figures. Jamal Murray led them in scoring with 23 points. Mason Plumlee, Malik Beasley, and Torrey Craig scored 17, 15, and 14 points respectively for Denver.

The Clippers once again relied on Lou Williams, who had 19 points and five helpers. Montrezl Harrell added 16 points and six boards while Danilo Gallinari combined for 36 points, 14 rebounds, and eight assists.
