On May 3rd, 2019, in Game 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals between the Denver Nuggets and Portland Trailblazers, the game went to four overtimes. Eventually, the Portland Trailblazers beat the Denver Nuggets, 140-137.

When the game ended, most NBA fans, myself included, went to make fun of how exhausted Nikola Jokic was. Considering how unathletic Jokic was, he was a pretty easy target for memes. However, if any of us NBA fans had to play 65 MINUTES of basketball, we'd be just as gassed out.
