Frank Vogel and the Los Angeles Lakers will face the Denver Nuggets, led by active NBAM VP Nikola Jokić. According to the Lakers head coach, his team will focus on defending a Serbian center unlike any other player in the league.

“You said it obviously starts with the Joker,” Vogel said. “There’s a lot of coverage going on to protect all the actions he’s taking. He’s the NBA’s most unique player. Much of our focus today is to look at those unique coverage. It was just that. “

The Lakers head coach also talked about the most effective tactics against Jokić. “I understand,” he said. “I’m not going to publish the lineup. But it’s worth a lot to stretch him out, be as vigilant as possible, and try to use the space we’ve been using aggressively. I have no intention of releasing a lineup to use. “

This season, Jokić has averaged 25.5 points, 14 rebounds and 7 assists per Nuggets game in 32.7 minutes. Denver and Los Angeles have similar records (21-19 and 21-21, respectively) and sit side by side in the Western Conference rankings.
