Nuggets Jokic to Win Second Straight MVP Award

Nikola Jokic has won the 2021-22 NBA MVP award, taking the league's top individual honor for the second consecutive year, per ESPN. Jokic's back-to-back MVP awards match the feat accomplished by fellow finalist Giannis Antetokounmpo during the 2018-19 and '19-20 seasons. The third finalist, Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid, has never won the award.
Aside from assists, Jokic managed to improve upon his per-game averages in every major statistical category in the regular season. He finished with career highs in points (27.1), rebounds (13.8), blocks (0.9) and steals (1.5) per game. He also made a career-high 58.3 percent of his field goals, and while he did not match his career high in free throw or 3-point percentage, he did set highs in total free throws (379) and 3-pointers (97) made.
