Los Angeles Lakers center Ivica Zubac had a monster 14-point fourth quarter Friday night; helping Laker nation erase a 17-point Bucks lead to force overtime. The Lakers would eventually fall to Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Bucks in overtime, but not before the entire Staples Center erupted in M-V-P! chants for the 21 year-old Zubac.
Zubac, although appreciative of the MVP chants, says he knows they are a joke. Zubac also said he will join the Los Angeles Croatian community for church this Easter Sunday if the Lakers do not schedule a morning shoot-around. Lakers play the Kings Sunday night.
