Nikola Jokic, Nuggets ready for rematch vs. Suns

Nikola Jokic is getting some early season buzz as an MVP candidate, and with good reason. The Denver Nuggets star is averaging a triple-double 14 games into a 72-game schedule, and he is flashing improved defense and dunking ability.

"It's just like watching a surgeon pick somebody apart," Denver coach Michael Malone said. "Nikola is a first-ballot Hall of Famer. He is the best center in the world."

Jokic will be tested when the Nuggets play the Phoenix Suns on Friday night, the first of two straight days of playing in Phoenix. The Suns are led by Devin Booker, but Deandre Ayton is showing why he was the first overall pick in the 2018 draft.
