Jokic to lead Nuggets against Pelicans

DENVER -- The last time Nikola Jokic was in front of his home fans he supplied a must-see highlight at the expense of LeBron James, backing and bumping the league's four-time MVP deep into the paint before swishing a hook shot over his extended reach.

The Denver Nuggets (35-37) need all the production they can get from their rising 22-year-old Serbian big man as they head into the final 10 games of the regular season. They are clinging onto the eighth spot in the Western Conference, with the Portland Trail Blazers in hot pursuit.

On Sunday, the Nuggets will play the New Orleans Pelicans (30-42), another team in the playoff chase, in Denver's last game at the Pepsi Center before a five-game road trip.
