Nikola Jokic warned Victor Wembanyama to stop blocking him

In a thrilling showdown, Nikola Jokic dominated with 42 points to lead the Denver Nuggets to a narrow 110-105 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday night, reclaiming sole possession of first place in the Western Conference. Jokic also notched 16 rebounds and six assists.

Spurs rookie Victor Wembanyama stole the spotlight with an impressive stat line of 23 points, 15 rebounds, eight assists, and nine blocks, including several rejections against Jokic.

One notable moment occurred when Jokic rushed to make dunk on a fastbreak before Wembanyama was able to get to him, prompting a humorous exchange between the two players. Jokic jokingly admitted that he warned Wembanyama to refrain from blocking his shots.

“At least I’m going to be aggressive and try to dunk it. Like, why not? And then it was funny,” the Serbian superstar said about his dunk. When asked about his message to Wembanyama, Jokic added “If you block one more shot, I’m going to… something. But he blocked like four after that, so I didn’t do anything about that.”
