These games have a lot in common with the NBA but there are also differences including certain rule changes and of course the guys on the court.
But both the FIBA and NBA games have one thing in common: Jokic is an absolute menace at all times.

For example, he scored a wild and thrilling three-pointer in a close game against Greece.
It was a stunning shot no matter what but it was made all the more impressive when you consider he was being guarded by none other than two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks.
It was a clash of the titans that saw two of the best players in modern basketball face off against each other.
And Jokic reigned supreme.
Jokic Leads The Way
Jokic and his team ended up winning 100-94 in overtime against Greece.
He put up 29 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 assists.
This was yet another example of Jokic being one of the best players alive right now.
His bucket over Antetokounmpo was a jaw-dropper but not just because he made the shot.
The way he moved and the way he was able to maneuver himself with total ease is what makes Jokic so special.
He is a big man yet he moves like someone half his size.
Jokic is always in such wonderful control of his body and the ball and yet he can also grab multiple boards and create numerous blocks too.
We haven’t seen a center like Jokic in some time and that’s why so many people consider him a generational talent.
