After praising Nikola Jokic in the MVP race, saying that “he deserves to get another one, the way he’s playing”, Nikola Vucevic has beaten the Serbian power in the NBA Night.

The Chicago Bulls overcame the Denver Nuggets 117-96, and the Montenegrin center had his 40th double-double of the season with 25 points and 15 rebounds, shooting 9/17 from the field and 5/5 at the charity stripe in 35 minutes spent on the court.

On the other hand, Nikola Jokic went close to the umpteenth triple-double of the season with 18 points, 12 rebounds, and 8 assists. “One game doesn’t mean we’re a bad team, but I think we have weaknesses like every team has weaknesses”, the two-time NBA MVP said after the loss.
