It was just another day at the office for Nikola Jokic on Wednesday night as he recorded his 10th triple-double of the season to help lead the Nuggets to a 129-104 victory over the Charlotte Hornets. It was a light night for Jokic scoring wise as he poured in just 12 points, but he did that on just seven shots and he made six of them.
Jokic did not attempt a three or a free-throw all night, but he did haul in 10 rebounds and dish out 10 assists to help Denver pick up the victory. Jokic did all that in just 28 minutes and three quarters as he sat the entire fourth quarter with the Nuggets in firm control of the game.
Not only did he record another triple-double, but Jokic also registered his 36th double-double of the season and 228th for his career. That moves him into sole possession of first place on the Nuggets all-time list passing the legend, Dikembe Mutumbo.
Another extremely efficient game for Jokic as the Nuggets have now won seven of their last eight games. Not only are the Nuggets winning games, but they are doing it with their big three playing well as both Michael Porter Jr. and Jamal Murray played great in Denver’s win against Charlotte.
MPJ scored 28 points and hauled in 13 rebounds, while Murray scored 19 points behind four three-pointers. Jokic, Murray, and Porter are finding their rhythm, which should scare the rest of the NBA.
