Jokic, Porter help Nuggets cruise by Rockets, 128-99

HOUSTON (AP) Nikola Jokic scored 29 points, Michael Porter Jr. added 21 and the Denver Nuggets cruised to a 128-99 victory over the Houston Rockets on Friday night.

Jokic dominated in the paint, hitting 10 of 12 field goals and adding 16 rebounds. Jokic fell three assists shy of his 16th triple-double of the season and second in as many games. He played just 27 minutes in the game and not at all in the fourth quarter.

"What makes him the MVP is he hasn't missed any games, he has this team - and we've had some injuries - in the top four of a very deep and talented Western Conference," Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. "And then you talk about his stats and efficiency, and it's historical numbers. We're fortunate to have him and we all realize that."
