Nikola Jokic Credits The Los Angeles Lakers As Their Toughest Matchup Last Playoffs Despite Sweep


The NBA playoffs are just getting underway, but drama is already brewing in the Western Conference, as the Los Angeles Lakers find themselves in a rematch against the Denver Nuggets, who dominated them 4-0 in the Western Conference Finals last season.

Many see the Nuggets as clear favorites to win the first-round series. However, some believe the Lakers, who are healthier this year and with some added pieces, might bring more fight than last season.

Of course, the Lakers’ 4-0 sweep at the hands of the Nuggets has left many questioning their chances. However, Nuggets superstar Nikola Jokic offers a different perspective. Despite the sweep, he believes their series against the Lakers was their toughest series last playoffs.


“It was probably the toughest series that we had (last year).”
