Nikola Jović struggled to get a chance in Miami since the beginning of the season, Erik Spoelstra decided to send him to the development team of Skyforce. He was already the best in his debut and gives hints that he could buy a return ticket to an NBA team. A particularly striking moment is the arrival of Jimmy Butler, who appreciates the Serbian basketball player.
Erik Spoelstra praised Jovic during Mundobasket, Nikola was one of the main aces of the tournament in Manila, but after returning to Miami, he didn’t get many chances.
The Skyforces were defeated by the development team of Milwaukee, with 123:121, and our representative had 26 points with 8/15 from the field in 33 minutes. He added 5/5 from the penalty line, had three rebounds and assists, one steal and two turnovers.
Since Mundobasket, Jović played in four NBA matches for Miami, against Brooklyn, Houston, Minnesota and Milwaukee. The last time he appeared was against the Bucks on October 31, after that he was on the bench for six matches, and was not even on the scoresheet for three.
After the match, Jimmy Butler went to the Skyforce locker room and supported Jović and the other guys from whom he expects a lot. He published everything on social networks and that is his message – that these guys deserve attention, and above all Jovic and Jamal Kane.

Serbian national team player Nikola Jovic has only played two games for Miami since the start of the season, but Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says he is satisfied with his development. Jovic logged 21 minutes against Minnesota (eight points and 11 rebounds) and seven against Milwaukee (five points and four rebounds) and that’s it. Miami lost both of those matches, and the young Serbian basketball player never got another chance.
