The Lakers and the Nuggets are set to open the Western Conference Finals tonight in Denver. One of the main challenges for the Purple and Gold is containing Nikola Jokic.
The two-time league MVP has upped his game in the second round series against the Suns as he averaged 34.5 points, 13.2 rebounds and 10.3 assists in 38.5 minutes per game.
Los Angeles head coach Darvin Ham says that the goal for his team is to force the Serbian superstar to be indecisive.
“You’re not going to speed him up, you’re not going to slow him down, you just have to make sure you have a presence on him the whole time… but you just try as much as possible to put him in a position where it creates indecision,” Ham said about Jokic.
