‘Versatile’ Yokichi, PO 1 record established… Denver wins 2 in a row

 in the second leg of the first round of the 2023 NBA Western Conference Playoffs against the Minnesota Timberwolves held at the Denver Ball Arena in Colorado, USA, and played an active part with 27 points, 9 rebounds and 9 assists. Denver won 122-113 after a firefight and ran for two consecutive wins.

Showdown between 스포츠토토Jamal Murray and Anthony Edwards was an interesting match. When Edwards poured in 41 points, including six 3-pointers, Murray responded with 40 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals. Murray also led the team’s offense, making 6 of 10 3-pointers.

The main character was different. It was Yokichi. Jokic unfortunately failed to achieve a triple-double, but set a record that had never been in NBA history. Jokic averaged 26.2 points, 11.5 rebounds and 6.4 assists in 50 career playoff games, including this day’s game. According to local media ‘ESPN’, it is the first time Jokic has averaged more than 25 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists in 50 playoff games since his debut. This is a record that shows Yokichi’s versatile side.

Yokichi is a triple-double maker. He recorded 105 triple-doubles in 596 regular league games, ranking sixth in his career. Next season, it is highly likely to surpass LeBron James (LA Lakers) and Jason Kidd (retired), who are tied for fourth place with 107 times. As he is still in his 20s, it is not unreasonable to aim for the number one career triple-double in the future. Denver had two wins left to advance to the second round thanks to Jokic’s performance that continued in the playoffs.

On the other hand, Minnesota failed to counterattack even after six players scored in double digits. Karl-Anthony Towns (10 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists) recorded a double-double, but he swallowed regret by showing Yatoo hunting (3/12).
