Nikola Jokić put up yet another amazing stat line in the Denver Nuggets game 1 victory over the Lakers, proving again that he probably should have won the MVP for a third straight year. Doug brings his exceptional basketball acumen to bear and explains how the numbers don’t lie. He breaks down Joker’s performance from a statistical perspective which shows his unique dominance on the court.

Doug Gottlieb: “The argument for Nikola Jokić to be the MVP the past 3 seasons...was really simple. Analytics told you that he was far and away the best player in the NBA... Last night was not just a win for the Nuggets, that was a win for analytic basketball.”
