"I don't really listen to Patrick Beverley a whole lot. If Kawhi Leonard was talking, maybe I might listen to him. Kawhi's a great player," Malone told reporters, including USA Today's Mark Medina, before highlighting the fact Jokic didn't do most of his damage from the charity stripe in Game 3.
"All you got to do is look at the stat sheet. Zubac attempted more free throws than Nikola Jokic (in Game 3)," Malone continued. "They shot 26 free throws, we shot 10. So I'm not really sure what game Patrick is talking about or looking at, but I really don't warrant and give too much attention to that."
