Nikola Jokic liked his game-winner over Sixers better than one against Timberwolves
So, which one did Jokic like more? The Nuggets star says his one against the Sixers was better because he made it with less time on the clock, via Katy Winge of Altitude TV:
I asked Nikola Jokic which one of his back to back game winners he liked better.
He said Philly, because he made it with less time on the clock.
Jokic was also asked if it’s more of a relief or excitement. He said both, one so he doesn’t get yelled at, two because they win.

The Nuggets are 7-2 on the season. They have won four games in a row.
Jokic is averaging 16.7 points, 9.3 rebounds and 6.0 assists per game. He’s shooting 44.7 percent from the field, 24.4 percent from beyond the arc and 73.3 percent from the free-throw line.
The Nuggets’ do-it-all big man already has four double-doubles and two triple-doubles on the season.
Last season, the Nuggets made it to the second round of the playoffs, where they lost to the Portland Trail Blazers in seven games. In the rugged Western Conference, Denver is out to prove that it belongs at the top and can compete with the likes of the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers and Houston Rockets — three teams which have superstar dynamic duos.
As is the case every season, the Nuggets will ultimately go as far as Jokic can take them. So far, Denver looks like it will once again be a force to deal with.
