Nikola Jokic didn’t quite look like himself in the Denver Nuggets’ 108-107 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night, but he finished with a typical stat line. In front of a large group of Serbian fans at the United Center, Jokic put up 22 points, 12 rebounds and 9 assists, falling just short of a triple double in the overtime victory.

Jokic hit 9 of his 20 shot attempts on the night, including 3-6 from deep—two of those coming in an overtime period in which he scored 8 points on 4 shots. It wasn’t exactly a signature game from Big Honey, but ultimately it’s another strong performance in another win.
