Ivica Zubac shot 6-of-8 from the field and 3-of-4 from the foul line in Saturday’s loss to the Nuggets, finishing with 15 points and nine rebounds in 20 minutes.
At first glance Zubac had a good game, as he fell one rebound shy of his third double-double of the postseason. But he struggled defensively, as evidenced by Nikola Jokic’s performance. Jokic finished with 26 points, 18 rebounds, four assists, three blocks and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes. The blame shouldn’t fall solely on Zubac’s shoulders, as Montrezl Harrell had a tough night off the bench, but he is the Clippers’ best option when it comes to defending Jokic. "Overall I didn’t do a good job defensively tonight. … I’m going to bring it next game,” Zubac said after Saturday’s loss. Sep 06 12:28 am (EST)
