The Jokic Brothers were sporting Serbia jerseys and clearly look proud of The Joker. I mean, how can they not be? The center is playing at a ridiculously high level in these playoffs. While he didn't have another triple-double Friday, Jokic still balled out.
The two-time MVP finished with 23 points, 12 rebounds, and four assists in 37 minutes of action and actually spent a lot of the fourth quarter on the bench due to foul trouble. Nevertheless, the Nuggets stepped up without their superstar, with just about everyone doing their part.
Aside from Nikola Jokic putting up respectable numbers, the likes of Bruce Brown, Aaron Gordon, Jamal Murray, and Michael Porter Jr all contributed. Gordon actually collected a team-high 27 points.
Now, the series heads back to Denver for Game 5 and you better believe the Jokic brothers will be in attendance. They're not going to miss the chance to potentially celebrate capturing an NBA championship. That opportunity will come on Monday evening as tip-off is scheduled for 8:30 PM ET. I'm sure Jokic will be bringing his absolute best, too.
