Nikola Jokic was benched for the entire fourth quarter of the Denver Nuggets’ loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday, and it seems like his effort was a big reason why. Jokic scored just four points with nine rebounds and five assists in Denver’s 118-107 loss to the 20-45 Mavs. He only played 26 minutes in the game, down from his average of 31.5. After the game, Nuggets coach Michael Malone said he saw a lack of effort from many of his players.
