The general feeling among Nuggets media tonight was that Nikola Jokić is likely in line for a suspension ranging from 3 to 5 games.
Nobody can blame him for responding to an elbow to the ribs though, and I’d expect Markieff Morris to get a 1 game suspension as well. – 1:17 AM

Postgame response from Nikola Jokic: He was expecting a take foul from Markieff Morris but thought it was a dirty play and he needed to protect myself. “I felt bad.

That was a very impressive win for the Nuggets. Jokic was dominant. Barton was on fire. Defense was elite. Nuggets figured some things out with the bench/rotation.
But the story is going to be Jokic and his pending punishment for that hit on Markieff. – 11:39 PM

Jokic didn’t like that and blindsided Morris in the back with full force.
