Jokic is legit in his prime, I feel nobody can guard Jokic within the submit, cannot double him as a result of he received that elite passing, and may depart him open as a result of he’s totally different

There was loads of anticipation main into this recreation, given all of the offseason sniping between these groups after Denver swept the Lakers in 4 video games in final season’s Western Convention Finals.

“[The end of last season] may be very motivational,” Davis mentioned on the Lakers media day earlier in October. “… I feel, me and ‘Bron had some conversations like, ‘We won’t wait.’”

“Anytime you lose, it is motivation to prepare for the following season to try to compete for a championship in order that in itself is motivation but additionally, all of the little speaking that is been going round all summer time—we’re prepared,” he added.

However saying you are prepared for Jokić and really coping with him… nicely, these are two very various things. On this burgeoning rivalry, chalk up one other win for the Serbian heart.
