Nikola Jokic and his Denver Nuggets are coming off an incredible 20-point comeback over the Los Angeles Lakers. The team is riding high as it prepares for Game 3 in Los Angeles. Everything seemed great until the recent report on Jokic’s older brother, Strahinja.

Strahinja was seen in a video punching a fan after last night’s Nuggets victory. In the time that has followed, the NBA has made it clear that they investigate the matter further.

“We’re told police are reviewing the clip circulating social media in hopes of identifying the man … but they’re also calling on any witnesses or other people involved to step up and talk.”

TMZ reported on the matter

While TMZ has reported that the police are looking into the matter, no official report has been made. This situation will obviously change in the coming days.

It still remains unknown what caused the incident to take place. However, this is not the first time that the Jokic brothers have made headlines. The brothers made some heated remarks about Marcus and Markieff Morris following their in-game altercation with Nikola Jokic.

“Denver PD has seen the footage of Strahinja Jokic punching a spectator in the stands after the Nuggets’ Game 2 win over the Lakers on Monday … but as of right now, no one has filed a report claiming to be a victim.”

TMZ reported

In normal situations, the NBA is usually very active in handling situations where fans act out of turn. However, given the fact that this is a brother to one of the best players in the entire league, it will be interesting to see how they handle the situation.
