Nikola Jokic returns to lineup, puts up 21 and 10, Nuggets beat Celtics (VIDEO)


Nikola Jokic had missed a couple of games due to illness.

Bad news for Boston, the Denver big man was back Friday night. He only played 23 minutes, but he had 21 points, 10 boards, and seven assists in that time.

Jokic (along with 23 from Wilson Chandler) helped Denver beat Boston 119-99, a key win for the Nuggets as they try to hold off Portland for the eighth seed in the West.
