Jokic could not help Denver
The victory in the first series of the playoffs was reached by the Golden State team, which celebrated at home against Denver with a score of 102: 98, and they were led to victory by Curry last night, who scored 30 points with five rebounds and as many assists.
Denver was not helped by the unstoppable Nikola Jokic, who scored 30 points and added 19 rebounds and eight assists. According to the media, Jokic also had problems with the injury of the backbox in the second half, and he also struggled with violations because he made four in six minutes of the third quarter.
Golden State will play against the better player from the duel between Memphis and Minnesota in the next round of the playoffs, and there is the current result of 3: 2 for the Grizzlies. The Nuggets are expected to give Jokic the largest supermax deal in NBA history.
"I would like it, of course," Jokic said when asked about a contract extension, per ESPN. "But it's not something that I'm deciding. I think if [the] offer is on the table, of course, I'm going to accept it because I really like the organization, I really like the people who work here. I'm in [a] really good relationship with everybody from [the] owner to equipment manager."
