He’s like Tom Brady! – Millsap talks up Jokic showing in Nuggets win

Tuesday, April 30th, 2019

Paul Millsap likened Nikola Jokic to New England Patriots star Tom Brady after the Serbian led the Denver Nuggets to victory over the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 1 of their second-round playoff series. Just two days after defeating the San Antonio Spurs in Game 7, Jokic put up 37 points in the 121-113 victory, making 11 of 18 shots and all 12 free throws to go with six assists and nine rebounds. Jokic clocked up an impressive 41-and-a-half minutes after playing 43-and-a-half against the Spurs, and Millsap said his team-mate's ability to always make the right decision is similar to legendary NFL quarterback Brady.
