SHOCK IN DENVER: Jokic was brilliant on the field, but he got injured and stayed in the locker room!

While some predict that they will reach the very end, but in the last few days, the Nuggets are having many troubles. Denver was first defeated by Cleveland, and now they lost to Utah 110: 122, but that is not the worst thing that happened to them.

Apart from the defeat, this match was marked by Nikola Jokic, who got injured after the collision with Gobert, so he did not play the entire second half. The Serbian center started great, he was the most efficient player of both teams, but…

the Nuggets were left in shock, as Jokic remained on the floor after the collision with Rudy Gobert, as he suffered a knee injury. Nikola was lying on the floor after an unpleasant blow, with a painful grimace on his face, and he could not return to the field.

There is still no information on the severeness of injury. In the broadcast, American commentators even said that this was a good thing for Jokic since it was a direct knee-to-knee blow, not a twist.

He had 24 points, six rebounds, and six assists in just 15 minutes on the floor. Denver suffered two consecutive defeats after two starting victories, but everyone in the Nuggets is much more worried about the injury of the Serbian center.

The Dallas beat Houston, which is their third defeat this season, as the Mavericks celebrated with the result 116: 106, and Luka Doncic showed a brilliant game. The Slovenian scored 26 points, 14 rebounds, and seven assists.

We must also mention Boban Marjanovic, who had a great game this night. He spent only a few minutes on the floor, scoring 11 points, four rebounds, and one assist.

Dallas managed to break the Rockets’ mini-series of two victories in mutual duels.

It was especially interesting in the duel between Golden State and Oklahoma since we watched the duel between two Serbian basketball players. “Warriors” celebrated 106: 98, but it must be admitted that Aleksej Pokusevski had a better performance than Nemanja Bjelica.

The Warriors, led by the great Steph Curry, recorded their fourth triumph this season, although Bjelica spent only eight minutes on the floor and recorded two points and two rebounds.

Curry shone again and scored 23 points, with six rebounds and four assists, while Serbian player Aleksej Pokusevski played 19 minutes and scored nine points, four rebounds, and one assist.

Golden State distributed the points much better, so Curry scored 23, Andrew Wiggins added 21, and Damion Lee added 20 points.
