'We didn't present any opposition:' Grant scores 29 as Jokic, Nuggets outpace Pistons 134-119

There’s a reason that Nikola Jokic is the favorite to win the MVP this season.

Jokic is just one reason that the Denver Nuggets are one of the favorites in the West, after getting to the conference finals last year.

Even with a good offensive performance, the Pistons had a tough time stopping Jokic and the Nuggets’ potent offense, and even a strong game by Jerami Grant in his return to Denver wasn’t enough.

The Nuggets got started early and didn’t let up, streaking to a 134-119 win over the Pistons on Tuesday night at Ball Arena.
