Following a fantastic Game 4, Nikola Jokic received some encouraging news from the NBA.

On Sunday, he was embroiled in an altercation when he attempted to grab the ball from the crowd and ended up pushing Phoenix Suns owner Mat Ishbia instead of scoring 53 points on 20 of 30 shooting.

Jokic won’t be suspended as a result, according to the league, but he will be fined $25,000 instead.

Jokic didn’t deserve to be suspended, according to some supporters.

This supporter appears to believe that Ishbia should be held liable because he retrieved the ball during the brawl when it was about to go out of bounds and hung onto it.

Jokic gave his Denver Nuggets‘ 3-1 series lead in the Western Conference semifinals as best he could in Game 4.

Jamal Murray also had a strong performance with 28 points and seven assists, but it wasn’t enough because he also had 11 assists and made 11-of-13 from the free throw line.

Devin Booker had a terrific game for the Suns, scoring 36 points for the team while shooting 14 of 18 from the field after going 20 of 25 and scoring 47 points in Game 3. Kevin Durant also scored 36 points for the Suns.

Even without Chris Paul, who has been sidelined for the past two games due to a groin injury, they won Game 4 129-124, tying the series at two wins apiece.

According to reports, Paul will also miss Game 5 in Denver, giving Jokic and the Nuggets a significant chance to take back the series and move within one victory of a trip to the Western Conference Finals.
