This is what Nikola Jokic does.

On a night when the Nuggets were sloppy in the second half and nearly succumbed to a 15-point lead, Nikola Jokic bailed them out by winning 3 games in a losing game.

It’s good to have Jokic on your team.

ANGELS – Only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has been in this rarefied air.

On the 20-foot straight jump with 5:43 left in the first quarter, LeBron James became the second player in NBA history to score 38,000 points.

That bucket leaves LeBron just 387 points short of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, once held as the all-time all-time NBA all-time record holder. LeBron is close to breaking the record just before the All-Star break in February, but if he misses a couple of games in a row — he has a sore ankle and is 38 — he could play at home against the Warriors in the first game after the break.

In any case, this is part of the story.

“I think he’s going to have the greatest career of all time,” Sixers coach Doc Rivers said of LeBron. “I think he already had it, you know, and I think Michaels is the greatest of all time. But that doesn’t detract from LeBron. LeBron had the best career.”

DETROIT (AP) – Julius Randle scored 42 points and 15 rebounds as the New York Knicks extended their winning streak against the Detroit Pistons to 11 games with a 117–104 win on Sunday.

Randle, who went 40-15 in the Knicks’ first game since Patrick Ewing on January 19, 1996, averaged 28.5 points in four games against the Pistons this year.

“I’m not sure it has anything to do with Detroit,” he said. “I feel like I can bounce back against any team.”

Detroit hasn’t defeated the Knicks since November 6, 2019, when its eight-game winning streak ended.

Jalen Brunson added 27 points to the Knicks and made three ties, causing him to tie with Kevin Love and Kenrich Williams for first place in the league.

“If he has a tie in first place, that’s good, because now he has something to work on,” Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said. “It tells me that you are sacrificing yourself for the team – sometimes it is taking charge, setting up a screen or being the first player on the court. All of this goes to win.”

Immanuel Quickly added 17 points.

“Today Fast was Fast,” Thibodeau said. “He’s irreplaceable.”

Jayden Ivey scored 21 points, six rebounds and six assists for the Pistons and saddik bay added 21 points.

“We fought the whole game, but we had to start better,” Ivey said. “We’re back in the game, but we’d love to bring back some of those late games.”

Isaiah Leavers moved to Detroit’s starting lineup and scored 11 points in 39 minutes, but the focus was on his defense.

“He sets the tone for us,” Pistons coach Dwayne Casey said. “He did a good job hitting the ball. Brunson had 27 people, but he had to work for them because of Isaiah’s size and height.”

New York led seven at halftime and extended their lead to 90-80 thanks to Randle’s stunning tip late in the third.

The Knicks started fourth at 10-2, including five from Quickley who went up 100-82 with 9:43 left.

Detroit closed the gap to 105–98 thanks to a three-pointer by the Livers, but the game was delayed several minutes by a faulty shot clock. Randle’s three-pointer returned the difference to double figures, and he called Bey’s basket with his own.

Randle helped the Knicks win the game from the line.

“We’re trying to build ourselves as a team, so when the playoffs happen, we’ll be ready for it,” he said.

The Knicks led a whopping 20 times in the first half, taking advantage Isaiah Stewarttrouble but bey and Kevin Knox II helped Detroit close the gap to 62–55 by halftime.

The Pistons’ next home game won’t be at the Little Caesars Arena, they will host the Bulls on Thursday at the Accor Arena in Paris.

“I’ve been out of the country a few times and been in London, but I’m very excited about it,” Ivey said. “I want to see a change of scenery, explore the world, do a little…
