It was a great evening at Ball Arena on Wednesday night for a team that desperately needed something good to happen. After receiving the news yesterday that Jamal Murray would miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL, the Denver Nuggets played their first game since their star point guard suffered that devastating injury.
The Nuggets came together as a team and found a way to capture a 123-106 victory over the Miami Heat. Nikola Jokic played a big role in that as he scored 17 points, dished out 11 assists, and hauled in 10 rebounds. Jokic did all that on 6-of-14 shooting from the field, 1-of-2 from three.
Jokic now has 15 triple-doubles for the season and 56 for his career. As the Nuggets attempt to close the regular season on a high note, Jokic continues to play like an MVP front runner helping the Nuggets continue to pile up victories.
