Jokic registered 47 points (20-31 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 15 rebounds, eight assists and a block across 45 minutes in Monday's 139-137 double- overtime win over the Grizzlies.

Jokic continued to strengthen his candidacy for NBA MVP honors, contributing across the board in the Nuggets' thrilling win while picking up his points with supreme efficiency. The 26-year-old center has been the top player in both eight- and nine-category leagues throughout the season, and that's unlikely to change while he likely takes on even greater usage with Jamal Murray (knee) is sidelined for the remainder of the campaign.
