Denver Nuggets Fantasy Spin
Nikola Jokic posted his sixth triple-double of the season Saturday vs. the Cavaliers, tallying 19 points (8-of-12 FGs, 0-of-1 FTs), 12 assists, 11 rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes. Jokic (22 career triple-doubles) is now second on the NBA's all-time list for triple-doubles by a 7-footer, passing the great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. He's got a long way to go before he catches Wilt Chamberlain at 78, but the 7-footer has at the very least established himself as one of the top centers in the NBA. Over the last five games Jokic is averaging 23.4 points, 8.6 rebounds and 8.6 assists per with 53.8/38.1/85.2 shooting splits.
Utah Jazz Fantasy Spin
Rudy Gobert grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds Monday vs. the Trail Blazers, and he also accounted for ten points (4-of-10 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs), four blocked shots and three assists in 33 minutes. The night got off to a strange start for Gobert, as he was late the court and ultimately did not start the game. The center had a difficult time dealing with Portland’s Jusuf Nurkic, but he still managed to put up his 39th double-double of the season. Over his last five games the 7-footer is averaging 17.0 points, 18.2 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 2.8 blocks per while shooting 66.7% from the field and 73.5% from the foul line. Due to that production Gobert has been a top-15 player in 9-category leagues over the last two weeks.
