The ‘Joker’ is having an outstanding season and is the main candidate to win the Most Valuable Player Award, a trophy that he already earned last year. Nikola Jokic is a step above other candidates such as Joel Embiid or Giannis Antetokounmpo, but the race is too tight.
The numbers of the Nikola Jokic:
The stats prove the great performing from the center of the Denver Nuggets. He averages 26.1 points, 13.9 rebounds and 8.1 assists per game, which almost equals to a triple-double per match. And talking about triple-doubles, the Serbian has ended with triple-doubles for two consecutive nights this week against the Warriors (32 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists) and the Pelicans (46 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists). What a player.
Furthermore, this is a historic season for the center. He has more triple-doubles in his career (74) than all the rest of players of the Denver Nuggets combined together (72). Nikola Jokic has become into the second player in franchises’s history that gets a triple-double of more than 45 points with an accuracy percentage in field goals shooting above 70%, which evens Wilt Chamberlain.
Moreover, he became into the first player who ends with more than 40 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists, 3 steals and 3 blocks in the game versus the Pelicans.

The ‘Joker’ is carrying the entire team on his back. The Denver Nuggets’ season got complicated with the injury of Jamal Murray, but Nikola Jokic has stepped up and being their leader. He is the best player of the team on almost every aspect: points, rebounds, assists, blocks, steals, efficiency and field goals percentage.
