Nikola Jokic, Denver Nuggets middle, named Western Conference Player of the Week

Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic was named the Western Conference Player of the Week, the NBA announced Monday afternoon.

Jokic, who earned that honor for the second time this season, averaged 23 points, 10.3 rebounds, nine assists, 2.3 steals and one block over the Nuggets’ three wins from April 2 through April 8 to keep Denver alive in a tight Western Conference playoff chase. He shot 51 percent from the floor and 42.9 percent from 3-point range over that stretch. He compiled his ninth triple-double of the season in Saturday’s win over the Clippers with 23 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists.

Jokic is the first Nugget to be named Western Conference Player of the Week multiple times in one season since Carmelo Anthony in 2009-10.
