Nikola Jokic was at it again on Monday night recording his 43rd triple-double of his career. Jokic recorded a career-high 18 assists to go along with 19 points and 12 rebounds to put him into a tie with former Nuggets great Fat Lever for ninth on the all-time triple-doubles list.
Jokic has now recorded a triple-double in two of the Nuggets first three games this season. Monday nights was his biggest thus far as not only did he set a career-high in assists, but he got the Nuggets into the win column for the first time this season.
Jokic needs just one more triple-double to set the Nuggets franchise record after his phenomenal performance on Monday night, I like his chances. To watch all the highlights from Jokic’s dominating performance, click the link below!
