Mike Malone Takes Huge Shot at Patrick Beverley in Aftermath of Nikola Jokic Diss

Mike Malone Denver Nuggets

Denver Nuggets head coach Mike Malone defended Nikola Jokic after Los Angeles Clippers guard Patrick Beverley took a shot at the big man.

Beverley called out Jokic for “flailing,” and he compared his game to that of Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic.

The Clippers knocked the Mavericks out in six games in the first round of the NBA playoffs.

Even though the Nuggets are trailing the Clippers 2-1 in their second-round series, Malone defended Jokic.

Beverley sure isn’t going to like that one.

Jokic responded to Beverley following the Nuggets’ Game 3 loss. He cited that his team only took 10 free throws in the contest.

Jokic finished Game 3 with 32 points on 13-of-24 shooting. He added 12 rebounds and eight assists.

Denver was able to overcome a 3-1 deficit in the first round against the Utah Jazz. It will look to avoid falling into that same hole against the Clippers.

The Nuggets and Clippers will play on Wednesday night from the Orlando, Fla. bubble.
