Nikola Jokic dropped 53 points in Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Suns, but it wasn’t enough as the Nuggets lost 124-129.

After the game Kevin Durant was asked about the Serbian superstar’s performance. “He’s ridiculous,” KD said about Jokic. “I felt like all of those shots felt like they were easy shots. He just played a game at a pace that you can’t speed him up, fluster him, he’s strong, he can make every shot.

“I mean I hate when he makes shots because he’s so orthodox and it’s like ‘Oh yeah that’s a miss’ and then it goes straight it. He’s incredible. I thought he carried them all night tonight scoring the ball.

“Like I said, him and Jamal [Murray] do a great job in that pick and roll. It’s so tough to stop. But we just play extremely hard. You’re not going to stop these guys. They’re efficient players. But we play hard and I think that made up for it.”

The series are now tied 2-2 with Game 5 taking place in Denver.
