Nikola Jokic, the undisputed MVP front runner is at it again winning another Western Conference Player of the Month award for his play throughout the month of March. It’s already the second time Jokic has won the award this season as he now becomes the first Nuggets player to win the award twice in one season.

Jokic is now the third Nuggets player of all-time to be named player of the month two or more times in their career along with Carmelo Anthony and Alex English. In 14 games during March, Jokic averaged 27.1 points, 11.4 rebounds, 8.4 steals, and 1.3 steals per game leading the Nuggets to a 11-3 record.

It was a busy month for Jokic as he recorded four triple-doubles in helping the Nuggets climb up the Western Conference standings to just two games behind third place. Jokic and the Nuggets look to keep it going tonight when they take on the Los Angeles Clippers.

Congrats to Joker, who continues to win award after award! Hopefully that coveted MVP trophy finds it’s way to Jokic at the end of the season because he 100 percent deserves it.
