Battle of Giants: Nikola Jokic vs Victor Wembanyama Set to Clash in NBA Showdown

Among the… 15 matches which will take place this night in the NBA, the one between the leader of the West (Denver) and the red lantern (San Antonio) is not the most balanced nor the most rich in issues. On the other hand, he will offer us a duel of giants: Nikola Jokic vs Victor Wembanyama at 2 a.m.

On April 2, during the last confrontation between Wemby and the Joker, we were treated to this kind of sequence.

This Wemby and Jokić sequence 😱😂

A 30-second sequence, which perfectly sums up the exceptional duel between the probable triple NBA MVP and the one who will be Rookie of the Year this season (and undoubtedly Defender of the Year in the future). The duel in numbers? It gave this:

  • 42 points (18/32 shooting), 16 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 blocks for Jokic
  • 23 points (9/29 shooting), 15 rebounds, 8 assists, 9 blocks for Wemby

It was only the third clash between the two monsters (won by Denver 110-105), but we have already had a very serious preview of what their battles could give in the future, starting with that of this evening in San Antonio.

“I told him, ‘If you block one more shot, I’m going to… do something. But he blocked four more shots after that, so I didn’t do anything at all.” – Nikola Jokic on Wemby after the April 2 match

“It’s fun to play against Jokic, but it requires a lot of work in terms of scouting, and you have to react quickly. There is no room for mistakes, no matter the position.” – Wemby on Jokic


42 PTS, 16 REB, 6 AST, 56% FG

23 PTS, 15 REB, 8 AST, 9 BLK

For his penultimate game of his rookie season, Victor Wembanyama will be keen to shine once again to show that he will soon be ready to take control of the entire NBA. As for Nikola Jokic, at the top of his game, he almost validated his MVP title through his enormous performance against the Wolves two days ago, but there is still first place in the West to secure.

Suffice to say that it could be heavy tonight in San Antonio!
