If you called the Suns’ Finals run last season a fluke, make sure to have a second helping of crow pie for Thanksgiving. More good news on the injury front, Brook Lopez – who has been out since the first week of the season – said his back is feeling better and he is ramping up towards a return. Jokic has played at an MVP-level to start the season: 26.4 points and 13.6 rebounds a game, a ridiculous 66.8 true shooting percentage, plus he leads the league in nearly every meaningful advanced stat such as win share, boxscore /-, VORP and PER. Put simply, Jokic is playing at a higher, more efficient level this season than last season when he won MVP. He just needs more help. In the short term, those problems start with De’Aaron Fox stumbling to start the season and regressing rather than looking like the All-Star they need him to be.
