Suns on verge of sweeping Nuggets, MVP

Nikola Jokic received his MVP award before Game 3 on Friday night, an official recognition that the Denver Nuggets star is the top player in the NBA this season.

The Phoenix Suns promptly showed they are the better team with a convincing win following the ceremony. Phoenix now leads the series 3-0 and has a chance to close out the Nuggets with a win in Game 4 in Denver on Sunday night.

"This is the first time I've been up 3-0 in a series," Suns guard Chris Paul said after the 116-102 win on Friday night. "Even though it's 3-0, as long as that team is being led by Mike Malone that team over there is going to keep fighting."
