Jokic’s stats this year were better compared to last year. He averaged a career high of 27.1 points with 13.8 rebounds per game. Including 7.9 assists, which ranked him eighth in the league.
Jokic, 27, broke records also by becoming the first player in NBA history with 2,000 points, 1,000 rebounds and 500 assists in a single season.
“It’s just remarkable what he’s done,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone on Jokic. “I know that I’m very biased, I admit it wholeheartedly the MVP isn’t even a competition. There’s other great players, I’m not saying they’re not great players, but what Nikola Jokic has done this year, with this team, with everything that we’ve had to go through, is incredible. He was good last year and he’s even better this year.”
