Warriors, Nuggets to meet in battle of 2-0 teams

DENVER -- Nikola Jokic will attempt to post consecutive triple-doubles for the fifth time in his young career Sunday night when the Denver Nuggets host the Golden State Warriors in a clash of 2-0 teams.

Jokic torched Phoenix Suns rookie hotshot Deandre Ayton for 35 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists in a 119-91 victory Saturday night that gave the Nuggets a season-opening 2-0 record for the first time since 2011.

In the second half of a back-to-back Sunday, he will go head-to-head with the young Golden State tandem of Damian Jones and Kevon Looney, who have taken over this season for veterans Zaza Pachulia and JaVale McGee.
