Storyline to follow: Watch out for Luka

Luka Doncic is fresh off a 38-point performance on Tuesday against the Spurs. The 21-year-old put the team on his back and attempted to carry them to victory. It worked until the fourth quarter.

Fans should expect a similar story against the Nuggets. Kristaps Porzingis is likely out leaving Doncic to take on even more scoring. He is up for the task, though. Expect a monster performance for the young star.
