Hawks hope to end skid vs. streaking Nuggets

The questions about Nikola Jokic and his lack of aggressiveness hounded Denver Nuggets coach Michael Malone last week. Jokic, the best player on the team and the only all-star, was deferring when Denver needed him to impose his will.

After the last two games those questions are starting to fade. Jokic has hit two game-winning jumpers in the final seconds and carried the Nuggets to a four-game winning streak heading into Tuesday's matchup with the Atlanta Hawks.

Jokic has always been a team-first player and at times has been reluctant to be the go-to guy. He has become that player after hitting a 15-foot jumper to beat Philadelphia on Friday, capping a franchise-best 21-point, fourth-quarter comeback, and then draining a turnaround jumper with 3.3 seconds left against Minnesota on Sunday.
