Jokic posts 32 points, 16 boards; Nuggets top Spurs 102-96

DENVER (AP) Not everyone thought Nikola Jokic should have won the MVP award last season. His Denver teammates did, and one, in fact, predicted he would repeat.

"I've never seen nobody play his pace. The slow Euro-step is unstoppable," JaMychal Green said. "A lot of stuff he does is unstoppable. He's going to be the MVP again."

Jokic added more fodder for debate Friday night. He had 32 points, 16 rebounds and overcame six turnovers to lead the Nuggets past the San Antonio Spurs 102-96.
