The Nuggets got back into the win column on Sunday and Nikola Jokic was a big reason as to why. In the Nuggets 133-118 victory over the Raptors, Jokic put together another dominating performance finishing with 23 points, 18 rebounds, and 11 assists.
Jokic did all that on an efficient 8-of-11 shooting from the field and shot an almost perfect 7-of-9 from the free-throw line. Not only was Jokic scoring the ball, but he was making some incredible deep passes that had to impress Drew Lock and Peyton Manning, who were both sitting courtside.

It was Jokic’s 12th triple-double on the season and the 40th of his career, which moves him three behind Fat Lever for ninth all-time. To watch all the highlights from yet another monster game from Jokic, click the link below!
