Nikola Jokic has been on a tear in the month of December and that continued Friday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Jokic picked up his fifth triple-double of the season and the 33rd of his career as Denver secured a 109-100 victory over Minnesota.

Jokic finished the night with 22 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists on an efficient 10-of-16 shooting from the field. Not only was Jokic dominating in the post, but he shot 2-of-4 from beyond the arc, which is a great sign that his long-range shot might be returning to form.

With his latest triple-double, Jokic moves into a tie with Bob Cousy for 10th all-time in NBA history. Jokic passed Rajon Rondo on Friday night and is just 149 from grasping the all-time record from Oscar Robertson. Anything is possible.
