The Golden State Warriors may not have secured a win in hosting the Denver Nuggets last night, but the fans still had a treat in seeing Dario Saric making an amazing impression of the visitors’ center Nikola Jokic.

Dario Saric channels his inner Jokic to assist Klay Thompson

Jokic is well known for his magnificent assists, and when facing the Serbian’s side at home, Saric found the perfect opportunity to mimic Jokic’s trait against him, which resulted in a 2-pointer for the visitors.

With 9 minutes to go in the fourth quarter of the Thursday night clash at the Chase Center, when the Warriors were on a 112-100 lead, Saric made a stellar one drop pass to Klay Thompson on the backcut, strikingly similar to some of the ridiculous passes that Jokic is famous for.

While the hosts had Dario Saric making an eye-catching pass that mimicked Jokic, the Serb was the one to have the last laugh. The Nuggets, who were still trailing behind the Warriors even in the remaining five minutes, were able to catch up and levelled at 127-all in the final seconds.

This was when Jokic had his moment of the night. The 28-year-old beat Warriors center Kevon Looney from half court to find the hoop, landing an exhilarating three-pointer and securing the victory for the Nuggets.

Check out the spectacular finish from Jokic below, courtesy of ClutchPoints:

 

Warriors have now gone 1-3 in the last four outings, and two of those defeats have been at the hands of the Nuggets. After bouncing back against the Orlando Magic 121-115 at home on Tuesday, Steve Kerr’s side aimed to avenge their losses against the Nuggets at home, and despite being on the lead into the final quarter, they couldn’t hold onto their advantage, and with the final strike from Jokic, the Warriors suffered their 18th loss of the season and are currently placed 11th in the Western Conference.

For their part, the Nuggets are on a two game win streak since losing to Oklahoma City Thunder last week. Their first game of the new year had Michael Malone’s side defeat the Charlotte Hornets 111-93 at home, followed by tonight’s thrilling win over the Warriors to mark their 25th win of the season. They are currently third in the Western Conference.
