Nikola Jokic has been playing at a different level than everyone else. The reigning MVP leads the NBA in triple-doubles this season with 11 and got his fourth straight Friday night against the Memphis Grizzlies.
The problem is Jokic's team isn't playing as well as he has been. The Denver Nuggets have lost two of their last three games and have struggled when Jokic comes out of the game.
That may change, however. Denver traded for sharpshooter Bryn Forbes earlier this week and signed DeMarcus Cousins to a 10-day contract on Friday. Forbes made his Nuggets debut in Friday's loss to Memphis and Cousins may play his first game for them Sunday night when the Detroit Pistons are in town.
