Watching a Nuggets game with Nikola Jokic’s older brothers looks like fun

Nemanja and Strahinja talked to Lombardi about their younger brother’s rising profile, passing ability and those occasional times when he gets angry on the court.

Last week Altitude TV’s Vic Lombardi caught part of the Nuggets-Suns game from an unusual vantage point: Between two enormous Serbian men.

Those men were Nemanja and Strahinja Jokic, the older brothers of budding Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic. Nemanja and Strahinja talked to Lombardi about their younger brother’s rising profile, passing ability and those occasional times when he gets angry on the court.

Nikola finished the Jan. 26 game with 27 points and 14 rebounds. He did suffer an injury —  a sprained left hip flexor — in the waning minutes. The Nuggets have gone 1-2 in the three games they’ve played since he got hurt.

Nikola could be back soon. Thursday, he was upgraded to questionable for Denver’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday.
