Nikola Jokic recorded his ninth triple-double of the season on Sunday and the 37th of his career. It took the Nuggets big man just three quarters to do so as Jokic had 22 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds going into the fourth quarter.
The Nuggets big man finished with 24 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists to help lead Denver to a 117-110 victory over the Houston Rockets. Denver is now 7-2 in games this season where Jokic records a triple-double, with the only losses coming to the Memphis Grizzlies and Rockets.
Jokic had 16 triple-doubles last year — 12 in the regular season — and is on pace to beat that number this season. Jokic still comes in at 10th on the all-time triple-doubles list, but is just six behind former Nuggets great, Fat Lever.
