Denver Nuggets DFS Spin
Nikola Jokic had a 21-point, 11-rebound double-double in Wednesday's 109-82 win over the Heat. The Heat were missing Jimmy Butler (COVID-protocol), Tyler Herro (neck) and Goran Dragic (groin) in this one, and the Nuggets took full advantage of the talent disparity, absolutely crushing them defensively. Jokic added one 3-pointer, three assists, one block and one turnover in his 34 minutes of play, and he finished 9-of-14 from the field and 2-of-2 from the stripe. His co-star, Jamal Murray, finished with a team-high plus/minus rating of plus-30 on his way to 14 points (4-of-11 FG, 4-of-4 FT), five rebounds, four assists, two treys, one steal and one turnover across 36 minutes.
