BOS held Jokic to 3 assists when they beat DEN in November; last night Jokic had 12 plus set up a bunch of open shots (for Porter especially) that probably didn't count as assists.
I did not know that Bruce Brown is shooting 40% on 3P this year (and last year). If he's really a 40% 3P shooter, I wonder if this team is better with him rather than Murray. Brown's defense is so much better - one thing they were pretty successful in doing is hiding Porter - and really, how much more offense do they need with Jokic controlling everything?
Gordon, KCP, and Brown are really good running mates for Jokic. I'll note that DEN is 5-2 in the 7 games Murray has missed, with wins over BOS (+12), MEM (+14), DAL (+1), GSW (+5) and OKC, with the two losses being to DAL (-28) and SAC (-1).
