Nikola Jokic’s Solution To On-Court Challenges Vs Wolves – A Clone Of Himself


In the aftermath of an intense Game 1 in the NBA Playoffs Western Conference semifinals, Denver Nuggets’ superstar  center Nikola Jokic made a comment that quickly became the talk of the town. The Nuggets faced a tough loss against the Minnesota Timberwolves, with a final score of 106-99. Despite Jokic’s impressive performance, scoring 32 points with eight rebounds and nine assists, the Timberwolves’ defense, led by Rudy Gobert, proved to be a formidable challenge.

In a post-game interview, Jokic was asked about how he could adjust to the Timberwolves’ strategy of rotating their big men to guard him. After a moment of contemplation, Jokic humorously suggested that having a “duplicate clone” of himself would be the ideal solution. 


“To have a duplicate clone of myself, and then I can be fresh,” Jokic said, “When they sub another guy, I can sub too.”



This light-hearted response not only showcased Jokic’s playful personality but also highlighted the intense physical demands of playoff basketball.

While the idea of cloning might be far-fetched, Jokic’s underlying message was clear: the Nuggets need to find effective strategies to counter the Timberwolves’ defensive lineup if they hope to succeed in the series.

As the Nuggets prepare for Game 2, all eyes will be on Jokic to see how he and his team adapt. Will they make tactical adjustments, or will Jokic continue to carry the weight of the team’s expectations on his shoulders? One thing is for sure, the Nuggets’ success in this series could hinge on their ability to solve the puzzle posed by the Timberwolves’ big men.
