Nikola Jokic had a big response to a question in Wednesday night’s post-match interview, which meant no response.
One of the traits that makes Jokic great is his ability to stay focused and not get distracted. Nothing says it better than his post-fight interview.
Jokic led the Denver Nuggets to a 109-94 win over the Miami Heat in Game 3 of the NBA Finals, scoring 32 points, 21 rebounds and 10 assists. The Nuggets center was said by ESPN’s Lisa Salters to be the first player in NBA Finals history to go 30-20-10 in a Finals game. She asked him how he would react, but he gave little response.
When asked what it meant for him, Jokic said: “Honestly, it’s not a big deal. I’m just happy that we won the match.”

That’s very Jokic. He never seems to care about personal achievements. He never seems to be celebrating. He strives to bring the same energy to every match. he stays focused.
And it became very clear: nothing matters to Jokic other than winning his first NBA championship. The Nuggets are leading the Heat 2-1 in the best-of-7 series and are two wins away from winning the title.
