The Joker was in his bag on Tuesday night and it almost led to something that has only been done four times in NBA history. Not only did Nikola Jokic record another double-double of 23 points and 11 assists, but the Nuggets big man also recorded a career-high seven steals to go along with eight rebounds.

Falling just two rebounds and three steals shy of a quadruple-double is quite the accomplishment by Jokic, who is putting an MVP type of season together though through Nuggets first 11 games of he season. Jokic is no averaging team highs in points (24.3), rebounds (10.9), and assists (10.5) per game.

If Jokic can continue to average a triple-double, he would become just the third player in NBA history (Oscar Robertson, Russell Westbrook — 3 times) to do that for an entire season. To watch all the highlights from Jokic’s historic night, click the link below!
