Nikolo Jokic scores 28 points, Nuggets beat Grizzlies 104-92

DENVER (AP) Nikola Jokic took on the role of closer.

Jokic scored 14 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter and had 13 rebounds and eight assists to help the Denver Nuggets beat the Memphis Grizzlies 104-92 on Friday night.

Gary Harris and Jamal Murray added 15 points apiece, and Kenneth Faried had 14. The Nuggets won their fifth straight at home, and they needed a big fourth-quarter effort to hold off the Grizzlies, who had whittled a 16-point halftime deficit to two at the beginning of the final period.
