Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets (40-28) will take on Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers (41-25) in part of the NBA Monday slate.

The clear-cut top storyline in this one will be the head-to-head showdown between two serious 2022 NBA MVP candidates in Jokic and Embiid. Some consider them to be the front-runners at this state.

Having a big game directly at the expense of the other will send shockwaves through the NBA conversation with how much recency bias goes into these races.

In their last outing, the 76ers got by the Orlando Magic and barely avoided what would have been a significant letdown performance. They needed overtime to get the 116-114 win with Embiid and James Harden both relying on the free-throw line to prop up their performance.
