Denver Nuggets superstar Nikola Jokic and his head coach Michael Malone were both ejected from Monday night's game vs. the Detroit Pistons, but the two were able to watch the game together in the locker room. Malone revealed a hilarious moment between the two of them following their ejections, saying they celebrated good moments together while watching the game, but Malone would swear in Serbian when something bad happened.

Jokic and Malone have a special relationship having spent so many years together, and while neither one of them wanted to be back in the locker room while that game was going on, they were able to watch the rest of the guys pull out a victory. This was a frustrating game for Denver, but it was of course made much better with the win.

The Nuggets had lost two-straight games prior to this win over Detroit, and looked to be in real danger of dropping a third-straight once Jokic was ejected. Already without Jamal Murray, the Nuggets were missing their second best player, and then their best player's night was ended before halftime.

Fortunately for Denver, they have an experienced and battle tested group that was able to come together and do what was needed to win this game. Now back in the win column, Denver will look to build off this momentum with the return of Murray growing nearer.
