Jokic and Mudiay: The Light of Denver’s Darkest Days


The Denver Nuggets have great potential, but with another disappointing season, the team heads into the spring without reaching the Playoffs. They improved three wins from last year, but couldn’t make over the hump. Rookies Emmanuel Mudiay and Nikola Jokic each shined for Denver and were both valuable assets to the team in the 2015-16 season. While Mudiay led his team in assists, Jokic ranked second in both steals and rebounds. After this duo develops into the one-two punch the Nuggets hope for them to become, they’ll be dangerous—they’ve already proved it with a few breakout performances.
