Jokic helps Nuggets beat Mavs as Doncic sits with sore ankle

DALLAS (AP) Nikola Jokic watched a lot of shots go up and come back down in the Denver Nuggets' hands Friday night.

Jokic finished with 19 points and 13 rebounds to lead a deep offensive effort, and the Nuggets broke out in the second half to beat the Dallas Mavericks 114-104.

Denver won the rebound battle 63-42, cruising to its third straight victory. The Mavericks have lost three in a row, this one without star rookie Luka Doncic due to a sore right ankle. He is considered day to day.
