Nikola Jokic has been at his best this season and his on-pitch skills don’t seem to falter in any way. Last year, Jokic won his first MVP award after consistently leading his team to the playoffs since the 2018-2019 season. The team has finished in the top 3 in the Western Conference for the past three seasons, and Jokic averaged 22.1 points, 10.4 rebounds and 7.5 assists.
Jokic is currently one of the frontrunners for the MVP award, once again leading his team into the top teams in the West. The Denver Nuggets are currently 6thth in the Western Conference with a record of 44 wins and 31 losses. The Joker has single-handedly led the team without Jamal Murray, who picked up an injury in last year’s playoffs. The Nuggets made it to the WCF where they lost to the Phoenix Suns.
Nikola Jokic celebrates his 60th birthdayth Double-double this season when beating Thunder
The Denver Nuggets took on the Oklahoma City Thunder, which they won 113-107. OKC suffered their fourth loss in a five-game span, and part of the reason is that they missed their number one options in Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Josh Giddey. The Nuggets were better on offense during 3/4th of the game with the Thunder scoring 31-26 in the fourth quarter. Nuggets also dominated on defense, recording 11 steals and 5 blocks.
Nikola Jokic led Denver and scored his 60thth Double-double of the season with 35 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists shooting 86.6% from the field on 15 tries. Mike Malone commented on his center by saying: “Nikola’s size and consistency should never be taken for granted. It should be admired every night because that sets it apart from everyone else.” He is currently averaging 26.3 points with 13.5 rebounds and 7.9 assists per game. His MVP odds this season are +135 behind Joel Embiid.
