Nikola Jokic Is Making History Down The Stretch Of The Regular Season

Following an MVP season, Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic has been spectacular again in the 2021-22 campaign. In fact, he’s started to really hit his stride over the past two weeks. 

The 7-footer has scored a total of 232 points while shooting 70.6% from the floor over his past seven games. No player in NBA history has scored more points over a seven-game span in which they’ve shot at least 70% from the field.

Not only is Jokic scoring a ton of points, but he’s doing it efficiently. 

Over this stretch, Denver has gone 5-2 in its effort to climb the Western Conference standings. As we enter the final week of the regular season, every game counts. The Nuggets just recently moved up into the fifth seed, jumping the Utah Jazz. 

During his last seven games, Jokic has also produced 14.4 rebounds and 7.7 assists per contest. He’s once again an MVP candidate, doing whatever it takes to get his team wins down the stretch. 

With a record of 47-32, Denver has just three games remaining in the regular season.
