Nikola Jokić put together a historic performance in Game 6 of the Denver Nuggets NBA Western Conference first-round playoff series, but it wasn't enough to stop a disciplined and sharpshooting San Antonio Spurs team from winning at home and forcing a Game 7. Jokić poured in 43 points for an all-time Denver franchise record for scoring in a playoff game, according to NBA.com.
The 7-foot Serbian center broke the team record of 42 set by Alex English in 1983 — but for the Spurs, Demar DeRozan and Lemarcus Aldrufge combined for 51, and Rudy Gay broke out out of a scoring slump with 19, as the five-time NBA champions cruised to the 120-103 win. Now everything comes down to one game, which will live stream from the Pepsi Center.
