Nikola Jokic was always tall — as a teenager he had to lie down in school photos to fit inside the frame. Now the 24-year-old Serbian basketball standout is bigger than ever, spanning a huge mural on his former elementary school and living the dream of every youngster as an NBA All-Star with the Denver Nuggets. With a slightly doughy and lumbering physique, the seven-footer (2.13m) has entranced fans and sports analysts with his uncanny precision, especially laser-sharp passes that have seen him likened to an NFL quarterback on court. Serbs are hoping that their homegrown hero — who did not play in the 2014 World Cup — can fire the country at the latest edition, which starts on Saturday in China.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee crowd greeted Carmelo Anthony with a loud ovation when the 10-time All-Star was introduced before the game. It cheered louder after the Bucks extended their winning streak to six straight. Giannis Antetokounmpo had his second triple-double of the season and Milwaukee beat Anthony and the short-handed Portland Trail Blazers 137-129 on Thursday night. “Giannis is Giannis,” Anthony said about the reining MVP. “He’s a tough check.
