Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic remains one of the most-skilled big men in the NBA.

That apparently has not excluded him from being on the wrong end of a highlight-reel play from Atlanta Hawks star guard Trae Young.

Check out Young nutmeg Jokic in epic fashion during Monday’s game, getting the ball to Alex Len for the finish and the foul.

That’s some pretty unfortunate stuff for the Joker right there. He stood no chance going up against Young’s wizardry.

The only saving grace is that he’s not alone. Young has been doing this to defenders ever since he entered the NBA last season.
