Nikola Jokic dominated the Knicks on Wednesday, tallying 32 points, 12 rebounds, six assists, two steals, two swats and four turnovers across 29 minutes in a 113-97 win.
Jokic set a new career-high for points in a quarter when he netted 24 on 8-of-9 shooting from the field and 8-of-10 at the stripe over his first 12 minutes, and in typical Jokic fashion, he deflected from his amazing performance during his postgame interview and instead heaped praise on head coach Mike Malone. "The guy gave me everything. The guy gave me the freedom," said the MVP candidate of his coach. "He led me. He showed me the way. And we built a great relationship... it’s more than basketball. It’s six years of building something together." May 06 12:29 am (EST)
