"The Lakers already had a good team last year and we have to keep working to reach their level. Basically because they have more experience than us."

The Nuggets, fourth in the West, visit this Saturday (23:00, Movistar Deportes) in the NBA Saturdays to some Kings who have taken the measure: two clashes and two defeats this year. Jokic takes on the meeting with extra pressure for the schedule. "I know that my fans in Serbia will be watching and that many games watch the games live."

It's the same feeling, so I know that he will go out of his way to make his countrymen proud, and that's what he will do in Sacramento. ”
