The Denver Nuggets forward Paul Millsap praised Nikola Jokic for his ability to make the right play every time, per ESPN:

“He’s like a quarterback out there. I consider him like a Tom Brady. He’s always going to pick you apart and make the right reads. Commend him for doing that at this stage in his career. It’s unbelievable. He sees how people are playing and guarding him. He makes the right play every time. … He doesn’t force anything.”

Jokic scored 37 points, grabbed nine rebounds, tallied three steals, blocked two shots and handed out six assists in the Nuggets’ 121-113 home win over the Blazers in Game 1 on Monday.
