Nikola Jokic went off for 26 points on 9-of-24 shooting (1-of-3 3-pointers) with 22 rebounds, eight assists, two steals, two blocks, and four turnovers as the Nuggets beat the Clippers 103-100 on Sunday night. Jokic put up an absolutely ridiculous line on Sunday, and he is on pace to have the greatest PER season of all time, at 32.7 at the moment. This comes on the heels of a 29-point, 21-rebound game on Thursday against Charlotte, and he has now put together monster lines in back-to-back games after a dud in a bad loss to OKC on Wednesday. Sunday was also Jokic's sixth 20/20 game for the Nuggets, passing Marcus Camby for the most in franchise history. The accolades just keep on coming for the Joker, and there will surely be more to come in the future.

Stephen Curry shot just 10-of-27 from the floor (8-of-9 FTs) for a game-high 33 points to go with four rebounds, six assists, three steals, one block, five 3-pointers and just one turnover in 37 minutes of Saturday’s 116-107 win over the Suns. Believe it or not, this was Steph’s ninth Christmas Day game of his career and was the only time he eclipsed the 20-point mark, so while this particular day hasn’t treated him well in the past, he did just fine tonight and led the team to a crucial victory. He came in red hot with three straight games of at least 30+ (now four), including a 46-point outburst in a win against the Grizzlies on Thursday, and Chef Curry is a big reason why his team has won six of their last seven games. He owes Otto Porter Jr. a gift after a huge fourth quarter, and if Steph fails to score at least 20 in any other Christmas game in his career, we’d be fairly shocked.
