Aaron Gordon and the Western Conference leaders (32-13) have played incredibly well this season. Your game helped launch a campaign for Nikola Jokic to win his third straight MVP award.

ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith believes in the nuggets. When asked which team in the NBA was the best, he didn’t hesitate to choose Denver.

“The Denver Nuggets,” Smith said. “Their depth is undeniable, Jokic is on track to be a three-time MVP, Jamal Murray is averaging 18 per game with 44% shooting, 38% from 3-point range and obviously he had those nasty knee injuries… Aaron Gordon, I can’t say enough about how he’s playing this year.

“So if I look at that and then record the elevation at Mile High. If you have home field advantage and you have four game potential there, that could be a death knell.

“I also want to give Coach (Mike) Malone a little love. He does an extraordinary job. … You could see that they have a level of admiration, respect and genuine affection for him. He deserves a lot of credit.”
