Nikola Jokic Leads Denver Nuggets in Epic Playoff Push Without Jamal Murray

The Denver Nuggets are currently the fourth seed in the Western Conference with a 46-24 record, but they are facing a difficult schedule as they try to secure a higher playoff seed. The Nuggets are without star guard Jamal Murray, who suffered a season-ending ACL injury in April, but they have still managed to win 11 of their last 14 games thanks to the play of MVP candidate Nikola Jokic.

The Nuggets’ upcoming schedule includes games against the Brooklyn Nets, the New York Knicks, the Utah Jazz, and the Portland Trail Blazers, all of whom are playoff-bound teams. The Nuggets will need to continue their strong play in order to secure a higher seed in the playoffs, which will give them a better chance of advancing deep into the postseason.

Jokic has been the key to the Nuggets’ success this season, averaging 26.4 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 8.4 assists per game. He has established himself as one of the best players in the league and is a leading candidate for the MVP award. The Nuggets will rely heavily on Jokic to lead them in the playoffs and will need contributions from their supporting cast, including Michael Porter Jr., Aaron Gordon, and Facundo Campazzo, if they want to make a deep run.
