Josh Okogie Receives Mixed Reviews After Game 2 Loss to Nuggets

Nigerian men’s basketball star Josh Okogie received mixed reactions following the Suns’ 87-97 defeat to the Nuggets in their playoffs game 2.

The top-seeded Nuggets, led by two-time MVP Nikola Jokic, handed Kevin Durant and the Suns their second loss, taking a 2-0 lead in the series.

Okogie, who started the game for the Suns in a star-studded lineup including Chris Paul, Devon Booker, Kevin Durant, and Deandre Ayton, was both praised and criticized for his role.

On the one hand, he was praised for keeping Nuggets guard Jamal Murray to just 10 points, shooting 3-of-15 from field goals and 0-of-9 from 3-point attempts.

He was also criticized for his offensive role, particularly after passing up an open shot in the paint.
