Jokic scored 23 points, 15 assists, and 11 rebounds in 36 minutes, and everybody is talking about his shot 5.6 seconds before the end of the match. Which was unfortunately not accepted as valid.
Denver led with 104:103, and Jokic received the ball and he was immediately fouled, and the Serb just threw the ball due to anger because the rival wasn't going easy on him. He threw and he scored!
It would be the incredible point of the season if the referees accepted it, but the throw was just a bit late.
Nevertheless, the Serb went to the free throw line and he set the final score. Nuggets were also lucky that Kyle Lowry missed the last shot of the game.
- It means a lot to us that we won against the leader of the East - Jokic said who was already at double-double after the first half with 14 points, 10 assists and 5 rebounds.
His team players praised Jokic for the great game and crazy ending.
- He can do everything. He passes, he catches the balls, he hits, he guards... - said Jamal Murray.
