Nikola Jokic (C) vs. Tyrese Maxey (PG)
Nikola Jokic has been instrumental in driving Denver Nuggets success this season.

Jokic is also an exceptional rebounder averaging 11.7 per game while his playmaking abilities stand out with 9.3 assists per game; defensively, his presence allows 1.2 steals and 0.9 blocks each week; yet unfortunately for the Sixers this player does average an impressive 2.8 turnovers per game which they could exploit easily enough!
Tyrese Maxey has been an outstanding addition to the Philadelphia 76ers this season. Starting 36 games played and started, Maxey averages 26.1 points per game on an incredible clip while providing his teammates with 6.6 assists per game and one steal each night as an effective defender and one shot-block per night (0.6 isn’t exactly impressive though!). Meanwhile his low turnover rate of only 1.6 per game coupled with an excellent assist/turnover ratio (4.1 assists per turnover ratio) demonstrate his efficient game management.
Nikola Jokic and Tyrese Maxey’s on-court match-up is an intriguing battle of two outstanding players with distinct styles. Jokic can score, rebound and facilitate for his Nuggets teammates; on the other hand, Maxey uses his scoring prowess and playmaking prowess as an effective point guard in Philadelphia 76ers uniforms. Their encounter will likely decide the outcome; should Maxey capitalize on Jokic turnovers to push uptempo play or exploit Jokic inside then it may give Philadelphia an advantage; otherwise Jokic could just as effectively dominate as an inside player creating opportunities for his teammates could give Colorado an advantage over its opponent.
