Nikola Jokic didn't perform as he usually does on the NBA court. He scored 4 points, 9 rebounds and five assists in the Denver defeat from Dallas of 118:107. Moreover, his last three games have been below the average we are used to. He didn't even have a double-double performance.
If we take into consideration that he had a monstrous statistics in February, with average 21.6 points, 11.7 rebounds and 9.6 assists, it is clear that he is in crisis.
However, the worst thing was that he didn't have enough energy to fight and to give his best for the team to win. Because Michael Malone, the coach of Denver, left him on the bench in the last quarter, as a disciplinary measure.
- It is one thing to make a mistake or to miss a shot, but it an entirely different thing to go out on the court and to just do your job.
- If you are not ready to play or to give your maximum - you won't play. Very simple, we owe nothing to no one, moreover, players are the ones who are obliged to do their best when they are on the floor - the coach of Denver said after the defeat from Dallas.
