“I think he’s 19 years old, he doesn’t get tired or scared. He’s playing hard and he wants to be good. Like I said, I think he’s playing hard and he doesn’t give up,” Jokic said after his NBA matchup against Wembanyama, who signed 22 points, 11 rebounds, 6 steals and 4 blocks against the Serbian MVP but could not achieve victory (Denver beat San Antonio 132-120).
