Last year’s MVP has been passing the ball extremely well recently with 10+ assists in his last 5 of 6 games and has 9+ assists in his last 10 straight. However, Michael Porter is out meaning Jokic will have to score the ball slightly more than normal. He’s had 25+ points in his last 5 of 6 games without him and particular does well vs the Pelicans. In his only game vs them this year he’s had 41 points/assists and averages 44.25 points/assists vs big Valanciunas since Jonas joined the Pelicans.
Give me Joker to exploit the matchup again without Michael Porter.
