Nikola Jokic Drops Epic Dime with Backward No-Look Pass

Rivea RuffContributorMarch 14, 2017

Nikola Jokic either has eyes in the back of his head or a highly developed sixth sense, if this play is any indication.

Jokic outsmarted the Los Angeles Lakers defense by taking a chance with a blind pass on Monday night at Pepsi Center.

The Denver Nuggets center grabbed an offensive rebound during the second quarter of the Denver vs. L.A. game. Finding himself surrounded by the Lakers defense, he tossed it back overhead without looking, connecting directly with guard Will Barton.

Barton was able to convert an easy slam, giving Denver a 47-31 lead.
