Nikola Jokic just took the young rookie James Wiseman to school as he spun his way to a smooth baseline slam on Thursday. The versatile Denver Nuggets center isn’t really known for his speed and strength towards the rim but Jokic showed both as he put the second overall pick on a poster with a masterful and-one highlight in the second quarter.
The Joker truly went deep in his bag of tricks against the Golden State Warriors.

A quick baseline spin, a couple of dribbles, and Jokic was off to a beautiful jam. Who said that he is slow? The seven-foot Wiseman, who’s averaging 1.5 blocks per game so far, was no match for the two-time ALl Star on the play and only goes to show that he’s got a long way to go as an up-and-coming big man.
Jokic has been rolling so far for the Mile High Club early in the season. The 25-year-old from Serbia has picked up where he left things off in the NBA Bubble and has been stellar as usual for coach Michael Malone.
Coming into the game against the Warriors, Nikola Jokic has been averaging an impressive triple-double with 24.3 points, 10.9 rebounds, and a NBA-high 10.5 assists per game.
