|Nikola Jokic feels guilty after his team lost to the Boston Celtics|
Playing at home, the Denver Nuggets were powerless to serve the fast and aggressive game of the Boston Celtics. As a result, Mike Malone's team had to fall with a final score of 104-124. This defeat is clearly very disappointing for fans considering the Nuggets played almost with a number of their flagship players (minus Jamal Murray who is still sidelined due to an ACL injury).
Nikola Jokic as the mainstay of the Nuggets then blamed himself for the defeat. "We lost because of me. It's very simple. Maybe I push myself too much, I don't know. I felt I had many opportunities to score easily, but I failed to take them. They really keep my movement tight. Defensively, I also often let my guard down and was in a position that was not appropriate, "said Jokic when interviewed by local media.
Overall, Jokic's game in that match was indeed less efficient. The Serbian player was indeed able to score 23 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. However, Jokic's shooting accuracy is so bad. He could only enter 8 shots from 23 attempts. As the spearhead of the team, he must not have such low accuracy if he wants to bring his team to win with a convincing score.
