Jokic's 28 points, 21 rebounds leads Nuggets past Pistons

DETROIT (AP) Nikola Jokic had 28 points, 21 rebounds and nine assists, Monte Morris made four free throws in the final 11.5 seconds, and the Denver Nuggets beat the Detroit Pistons 110-105 on Tuesday night.

Jokic was asked if he'd check the film for a missed assist, having fallen just short of a triple-double.

"I'm not worried about that," he said. "It was a good game for me and a huge win for our team. I knew I was having a big night, but I wasn't thinking about the stats."
