Jokic won the MVP last week, but then got ejected for a flagrant foul in the third quarter of Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Phoenix Suns. The Suns would go on to sweep the series. Deandre Ayton, the Phoenix center, matched up against Jokic in the series.
Ayton, who has averaged 15.2 points and 10.6 rebounds in the postseason, got a gift from Jokic.
