As the league heats up, the frequency of amazing comebacks and intense games will increase. That is exactly what happened in the Grizzlies vs Nuggets game as Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets won the game in double overtime. This was one of the most intense games of this season and it went right down to the wire.
Nikola Jokic bolstered his case for the MVP in this match as he gave a performance that was one for the record books. In a severely shorthanded Nuggets side, he had to perform to the best of his abilities in order to deliver a win.
In the post-game press conference, Jokic talked about how the team rallied together and snatched the victory from the jaws of defeat. He said, “It was a good night. I was aggressive right from the first quarter. It was a slow start, however, I think I made a couple of shots. I just continued to play well.”
He continued, “I had a really good night. I scored a lot but I also had a couple of stupid turnovers I can easily fix. “It was a good night for me and the team. They hold the whole spot really really good.”
The Denver Nuggets had to comeback in the fourth quarter to take this game into overtime. They did so in quite some style as all the players fought valiantly right till the final buzzer.
Nikola Jokic was the star of the show as he finished with 47 points to his name. Moreover, he also racked up a whopping 15 rebounds and eight assists in the match. Apart from him, Will Barton played the game of his life as he scored 28 points and seven assists during the course of the game.
“Life is about a bunch of little moments and I think Nikola’s got around 56 little moments this year where he’s shown he’s the MVP,” Denver coach Michael Malone said. “Tonight was also a character win for us.”
The Denver Nuggets are fourth in the Western Conference standings. At the moment, they are well in contention for the playoff berths. Moreover, they have a three-game winning streak in hand. Coach Michael Malone and his men will be pretty confident about doing well in the postseason.
