Nikola Jokic praises the Celtics: “He has answers for everything”

Serbian Nikola Jokic has yet to lose once to the NBA leaders, but took the opportunity to praise the Massachusetts franchise

For now, the Denver Nuggets is the only team to play against Boston Celtics in more than once in the 2023/24 NBA season and was not defeated. The league's last champions and this year's big title contenders have already faced each other twice. And even without losing to the Massachusetts franchise, the Serbian Nikola Jokic made a point of praising their opponents, with the two teams being the main favorites to face each other in a possible final, as they are the big favorites in their conferences.

“Man, the Celtics are a really good team. Seriously, playing against them is a very difficult mission. Beat them, even more. But I think that feeling comes because they always find an answer. And then we are talking about attack, defense, the game in general”, said the Serbian, last Thursday, 7th. Ironically, it is precisely against Jokic that the Boston team cannot find answers when they face each other. In the two games of the year, the two-time MVP averages 33 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists, hitting 60.9% of his shots, 50% on threes and didn't miss any of the 14 free throws he took.

But, it is fair to say that the current league champion is an unanswerable problem for almost any NBA team, especially because it has averaged 26 points, 12.2 rebounds, 9.2 assists and 1.2 steals throughout the season, being the leader of the race for MVP again. “It’s difficult to play against them. The way they are built is really very good. So, we are talking about important names playing well and in the right way. That's why they're the best team in the NBA right now. Like I said, the variation in defense, versatility, big guys, it's very difficult to score against Boston. And as I said, many high-level and very intelligent athletes. A great team”concluded the Serb.
