The Denver Nuggets secured their way to the Playoffs tonight. Taking on the Detriot Pistons, Nikola Jokic led the charge as the Nuggets broke a four-game losing streak. The Nuggets beat the Pistons 119-100.

It was a big win for the team, not only because it snapped their skid, but also because of what that resulted in. They became the first team in the West to get themselves a playoff berth. At the same time, the Nuggets clinched the NorthWest Division.

Nikola Jokic led the charge with 30 points, ten rebounds, nine assists, a steal, and a block. However, before the Nuggets won the game, Jokic had some fun time toying with the newly acquired James Wiseman.

Nikola Jokic runs circles around James Wiseman

Despite being drafted in 2020, James Wiseman has 73 games to show for in his career. While a majority of it can be attributed to his injuries, the other part can be because of lack of rotation minutes with the Warriors. He hasn’t been able to play against a lot of the elite big men in the league.

Knowing that, Nikola Jokic decided to have fun with Wiseman. While making a move to the basket, the 2x MVP put Wiseman on a spin cycle and made him lose his way.

Come on man, that’s just plain bullying by the MVP frontrunner. I guess it’s Jokic’s revenge on Wiseman for making him tip the ball into his own basket.
