Aaron Gordon, Bruce Brown, and KCP have been part of one of the best supportive casts in the NBA this season and they proved it once again today. Nikola Jokic, with 23 points and 12 rebounds, was an excellent regulator, although he had 5 fouls. However, the mid-game drama was quite tense as well!

A timeout in the third quarter was taken advantage of by the staff to pull the fan out of the arena for a medical emergency as the players and staff watched on.
