Denver Nuggets superstar Nikola Jokic is expecting an ‘interesting’ matchup with the Utah Jazz in the first round of the playoffs.

The Serbian center said the two teams had more than a few tough battles over the years and this first-round clash should be no different.

“It’s a really good matchup. It’s always kind of tough between us and them. It’s going to be a really interesting series. We have issues with just about everything. It will come down to how we will manage to hide them.

I think it’s gonna be a really nice series. I think we all are going to enjoy it … including you guys,” Jokic said, via Mike Singer of the Denver Post.
