An LA Lakers fan claimed on X, formerly Twitter, that Nikola Jokic's brothers were mad as hell and that one of them tried to push him.

Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets remained in Los Angeles for Game 4 of their first-round series against the LA Lakers on Saturday. “The Joker” led another come-from-behind victory two nights ago to put the Lakers on the brink of another sweep. The two-time MVP wasn’t the only Jokic in town as his brothers, who usually go on the road with him, were reportedly around as well.

Los Angeles started Game 4 like it has always had in the series. They came out on top in the first half with both LeBron James and Anthony Davis playing well. The question on everyone’s mind was can the Lakers finally hold on to another double-digit lead?

“King James” refused to go out quietly and dropped 14 of his 30 points in the final quarter to drag the Lakers to the finish line. The victory extended the series, which will now go back to the Denver Nuggets’ lair.

After the game, an X, formerly Twitter, user with the account name LakeShowYo posted this:

The photo only showed Nikola Jokic’s brothers walking towards what looked like one of the exits at Crypto.com Arena. There was nothing out of the ordinary in the said picture so the claim is unsubstantiated.

Strahinja Jokic and Nemanja Jokic might have some reason to be frustrated after Game 4 as the Denver Nuggets couldn't pull off another late-game victory. The two, who are always passionately involved in Nuggets games, must have wanted to leave the arena immediately.

The action was hot and pounding in Game 2 of the series between the LA Lakers and Denver Nuggets. Nikola Jokic led a strong surge late in the game to catchup with the visitors. The two-time MVP and Jamal Murray took turns carving up LA's defense in the final four minutes.

Murray's fallaway jumper over the outstretched hands of Anthony Davis capped off the defending champs' stirring comeback. The spectacular shot gave the Nuggets a slim 101-99 win.

Off the court, the action was just as intense as Strahinja Jokic, one of Nikola Jokic's brothers, was seen punching somebody. It hasn't been ascertained yet what the fracas was all about but the police are reportedly investigating the incident.

Nikola Jokic's brothers are known to be quite a handful when it comes to their brother or the Denver Nuggets. They will not hesitate to confront fans and even opposing players if push comes to shove.
