Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic Discusses Frustration with Referees

Published

Denver Nuggets superstar Nikola Jokic has been frustrated all season with officiating and was even ejected during the Nuggets’ win over the Washington Wizards on Sunday.

Jokic has been met with physicality from defenders, and is trying to match that same physicality, but seems to be drawing the whistle.

Jokic spoke about the contact he receives, as well as his view of how the refs are calling it.

“Sometimes it’s really hard because the ball is in my hands a lot and there is a lot of contact there,” Jokic said, according to Nick Kosmider of The Athletic. “I know I’m not going to get every call, but the obvious ones, at least.”

Jokic has a supported in his teammate, forward Paul Millsap.

“It’s a tough situation,” Millsap said. “On that particular play (that led to Jokic’s ejection), he got hit pretty hard. He’s just got to take a deep breath, I guess, and let it go. That’s about all I’ve got.”
