Nikola Jokic, the star center for the Denver Nuggets, played a crucial role in the team’s win over the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals. According to Nuggets coach Mike Malone, Jokic called some plays for the team down the stretch, which helped them outscore the Lakers in the final frame. Despite this, Jokic has no plans to pursue coaching after his playing days are over, stating that it’s the « worst job on the planet for sure. »
Jokic’s play-calling helped the Nuggets move one step closer to their first NBA Finals berth in franchise history, but they are well aware of the challenge they face in closing out a LeBron James-led team. Jokic expressed his concern about Game 4, acknowledging James’ capabilities and emphasizing the importance of maintaining the same mindset and focus.
The Nuggets’ victory in Game 3 was a team effort, with Jamal Murray also playing a significant role in the two-man game with Jokic. As the series continues, it remains to be seen whether Jokic’s play-calling will continue to be a factor, but one thing is certain: the Nuggets will need to bring their A-game to defeat the Lakers and advance to the NBA Finals.
