Paul George had nothing but good words to say about the superstar of the Denver Nuggets Nikola Jokic.

Jokic finished the game with 32 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists, but could not lead his team to the win (113-107).

For his part, George had a team-high 32 points for the Clippers, who edged the Nuggets and took the lead in the series (2-1).

“He’s great. He’s one of a kind at that position… It’s tough when he gets those calls, he throws his body around. It’s tough. Some of those, I don’t think are fouls, but he gets it. I tell Zu he’s just gonna continue to battle,” George told reporters after Game 3.

Game 4 is on Wednesday.
