Mike Malone has funny quip about Nikola Jokic, Paul Millsap developing chemistry
The Denver Nuggets’ new frontcourt tandem of Nikola Jokic and Paul Millsap should prove one of the more intriguing in the NBA this season, and head coach Mike Malone thinks that they are coming along just fine.
Addressing reporters on Thursday, Malone had a funny quote about the chemistry the two are already developing, per Harrison Wind of BSN Denver.
Nuggets coach Michael Malone said the chemistry between Millsap & Jokic is coming along. Said it’s like they’re on their “2nd or 3rd date.”

The connection isn’t surprising, as Jokic and Millsap are two like-minded and unselfish big men whose respective abilities to pass, shoot, and move will really help open up the Nuggets’ offense. That will also make the job a heck of a lot easier for Malone, who is quickly becoming quite the potent quotable.
