The Nuggets are now tied with the Portland Trail Blazers with a 21-15 record to sit at the fifth place in the NBA Western Conference standings. Nikola Jokic has been putting up MVP-type of numbers while getting help from Jamal Murray. The big difference was Michael Porter Jr. getting his groove back after recovering from an injury.
