Nikola Jokic Records Historic Night Before All-Star Break

Nikola Jokic Records Historic Night Before All-Star Break

In 14 minutes and 33 seconds, Jokic posted 16 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists to go along with a steal and two blocks, firmly placing his name in the history books as the fastest recorded triple-double in National Basketball Association history. In the last 10 games, he's averaging 19.9 points, 9.1 assists, 11.6 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 0.9 blocks in just under 33 minutes per game.

In the end, Jokic, who's about to turn 23, left the floor with 30 points, 15 rebounds, and a career-high 17 assists.

"I'm just playing the same way", Jokic said. "Maybe I was a little more aggressive tonight, but I'm playing the same". "Obviously, there are moments in the game when you are so locked in and you're anxious about getting another stop, but some of the plays that he makes and how he makes the right play over and over again and how he makes all of his teammates better players". I do recognize that. "We feel we have the most dynamic, best facilitator, best playmaking young player in the National Basketball Association".

Meanwhile, the Nuggets beat the Bucks, 134-123.

Jokic is turning into one of the most exciting players in the National Basketball Association due to his unrivaled passing ability from the center position that is creating the Nuggets into a really fun team to watch.

As a team, Denver caught fire from behind the arc as it tied a franchise-high in made 3s with 24. Wilson Chandler finished in double-figures for a fourth-straight night with 11. They go into the All-Star break at 32-26, good for the sixth-seed in the Western Conference. Plus, Paul Millsap will be back soon.

The second-round pick from Serbia won't bask in the glory of his historic night or Denver's February surge. "I didn't have any extra motivation or anything like that though".
