Nikola Jokic's Monster Line Not Enough On Thursday

Denver Nuggets power forward/center Nikola Jokic did all he could in the 120-103 Game 6 loss to the Spurs on Thursday night. Jokic scored a playoff franchise record 43 points and added 12 rebounds with nine dimes and added three steals with a block and just two turnovers in 38 minutes. It was all Jokic on this night as his teammates did not provide much in terms of support down the stretch. Jokic and the Nuggets move back to their home court for a crucial Game 7 and we see the Joker's numbers take a major spike when he plays in Denver with some home cooking.

Will Barton Cools Off In Game 6 Loss

Denver Nuggets shooting guard/small forward Will Barton was nowhere to be found on Thursday when he scored just two points in the 120-103 loss to the Spurs. Barton connected on just 1-for-7 shooting and added just two rebounds with a steal in his 19 minutes of action. The shift to the bench for Barton paid dividends in the last two games as he averaged 14.5 points in that span, but on this night, he struggled mightily. Barton has not had a great postseason, but he has a chance to change that with the series on the line on Saturday.

Paul Millsap Scores 12 Points With Four Rebounds In Game 6

Denver Nuggets power forward Paul Millsap supplied 12 points and four rebounds with nothing else in the Game 6 loss to the Spurs on Thursday night. Millsap tied his series high with 34 minutes played but was a team-worst minus-16 on this night. Millsap has been up and down in this series and hasn't provided much beyond scoring (12.3 points a night) and rebounds (4.3 rebounds a night) in the series' first six games. The Nuggets will need much more out of their big man on Saturday if they hope to extend their season.
