Jokic, who was primarily protected by the much smaller Draymond Green, had an excellent duel with Golden State’s defensive anchor and praised him after the game.

“He’s good,” Jokic stated. “He won a few Defensive Player of the Year accolades. He is a fighter, a warrior, and he does not back down. He is engaging in physical play. He’s a great defender. I believe he can protect numerous positions. He’s been doing it for a long time, so it’s a difficult matchup for anyone in the league.”
