Kendrick Perkins acknowledged Nikola Jokic’s case for the MVP award, after another impressive showing. Joker went on to record 20 points, 15 rebounds, and 11 assists in just 27 minutes vs. Detroit to confirm his great run this season

Among those that doubted Jokic was Kendrick Perkins, who threw the towel after Denver’s superstar dominant performance. To be honest, the Joker was the front-runner for the award since Joel Embiid missed three weeks with injury.

After the Nuggets vs Pistons game had been concluded, the former Celtics’ player put this out on Twitter admitting what was obvious in the last few months.

The Nuggets are outright incredible this season being the No. 3 seed in the tough Western Conference. Nikola Jokic has played a big part in the Nuggets’ resurgence in the second part of the season despite playing without Jamal Murray.

Only time will tell if Jokic will win the MVP award after the season is completed, however the Nuggets’ superstar has definitely a strong case.
