Denver Nuggets took a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference Semifinals by defeating Phoenix Suns 97-87 at the Ball Arena in Game 2 on Monday. After winning the second game, Nuggets center Nikola Jokic began walking off the court and made an adorable gesture to his 20-month-old daughter, Ognjena, which melted the fans' hearts.
As the two-time MVP started walking toward the locker room after Monday's win against the Suns, Jokic spotted his wife and daughter in the stands and waved at them. Ognjena began pointing to her ring finger, and the 28-year-old did the same in a heartfelt exchange.
