Nikola Jokic has career-worst shooting performance as Nuggets fall to Clippers in Jamal Murray’s return

No Lob City vintage magic this time for the Nuggets.

Nine days after going into Los Angeles and beating the Clippers without Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray or Aaron Gordon, the Nuggets lost 111-102 with all three in the lineup Wednesday.

Denver (14-8) hosts the Rockets on Friday in another rescheduled game for teams eliminated from the in-season tournament.

A Jokic low point

Usually, when Nikola Jokic’s rest minutes are shaky for the Nuggets and the game is closer than they’d like, the two-time MVP re-enters the game and everything fixes itself.

Not this time.
