Jokic gets 38, leads Nuggets past LeBron-less Lakers 129-118

LOS ANGELES (AP) Nikola Jokic had 38 points, 18 rebounds and six assists, and the Denver Nuggets moved into fifth place in the Western Conference with a 129-118 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday. Will Barton scored 25 points and Aaron Gordon added 24 points and eight rebounds for the Nuggets, who capitalized on LeBron James’ absence with a fourth-quarter surge to grab their fourth win in five games. ”Very satisfying, knowing the situation, four games to go (when) you’ve got people right behind you, pushing you,” Denver coach Michael Malone said.
