The Denver Nuggets defeated the Miami Heat 120-111 on Monday night.
Given that this was the first meeting between these two teams since their infamous squabble a few weeks back – tensions were high.
As a result of the bad blood, Heat fans did not take kindly to the reigning league MVP – booing him on multiple occasions.
After the game, Jokic was asked how he felt about the boos. At that point, he offered an extremely cold 5-word response to his Miami detractors.
“I played in Serbia brother,” he said.
When you play in a place like Serbia during your formative years, South Beach fans probably don’t intimidate you all that much.
He also opened up about how much he loved having his brothers with him in Miami.
“I mean to be honest, they’re coming to Miami every year when it’s possible,” Jokic said. “Of course last couple years there’s been COVID and no fans but I think they are in Miami every year so and then it’s really cool to have someone on your side.”

At this point, given that Monday’s game passed without incident, it’s safe to say the beef is done. War was avoided and everyone can move on with their lives.
