Nikola Jokic was able to help the Nuggets survive against the Wolves on Wednesday as he posted 29 points on 13-of-26 shooting while swallowing 14 boards, two assists, three steals and four turnovers in 36 minutes.
Jokic was highly regarded coming into this campaign and did not disappoint. He has played so well and has led the Nuggets to the second overall seed in the Western Conference that he may end up in the top five for the MVP ballot. Jokic sports a top-11/13 value in both 8 and 9 -cat leagues in both per-game value and total value. Jokic recorded nine triple doubles from the center position this season. It is safe to say that he will finish as the all-time triple-double leader for the center position in NBA history. He led his team in points (19.9), assists (7.3), rebounds (10.8) and steals (1.3). At the young age of 23, Jokic has first round upside going into next season while his floor is well within the second round of standard drafts.
