Video: Brother Of Nikola Jokic Punches Fan During Nuggets' Comeback Win Over Lakers

The Denver Nuggets don't just beat the Los Angeles Lakers, they tend to beat everyone. At least, they did last season on their way to the NBA championship. All-NBA performer Nikola Jokic leads the way on the court, as a center who often acts as the team's starting point guard.

His brother, meanwhile, is someone who will pave the way in the stands. Or at least punch someone if he feels it's necessary.

That became evident in a viral video from the Nuggets' thriller of a 101-99 win over the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round of the NBA playoffs. Denver now leads the series by a 2-0 count and has defeated the Lakers 10 straight times, dating back to last year's Western Conference Finals.

Anyway, on to Jokic's brother. The altercation was caught on video, from Ball Arena in Denver, and has since gone viral.

Per the New York Post:

"Jokic's two brothers, Strahinja and Nemanja, were caught on video throwing punches against an assumed Lakers fan in the crowd shortly after the Nuggets clinched the win to earn the 2-0 first-round series lead.

"TMZ Sports confirmed the incident through witnesses in attendance at Ball Arena.

"The video posted to TikTok on Monday showed the brothers plowing through the crowd to find a fan in a grey T-shirt, who was instantly punched in the face by the Jokic's older brother, Strahinja."

The NBA is investigating the altercation, sources told FanBuzz. It's unclear what sparked the altercation, but one thing's for sure — Jokic's brother sure did end it fairly quickly.

When it comes to the Lakers and their fans, it seems, the Jokic bros. just keep delivering knockout blows. Of course, it was Jamal Murray who hit the buzzer-beater to knock out LA on Monday night. And now, the Lakers are staggered. Sort of like that guy in the stands.
