Nikola Jokic Shines with Ninth Triple-Double Performance in 11 Matches

Denver Nuggets' Serbian star, Nikola Jokic, once again demonstrated his dominance in the NBA last night with another triple-double performance in a convincing 128-108 victory over the Atlanta Hawks. This marks the ninth triple-double for Jokic in the last 11 games, solidifying his status as the best player in the league this season.

Unstoppable Force

With 14 points, 18 rebounds, and 10 assists, Jokic was a force to be reckoned with on the court. Although his point total was modest compared to his usual standards, his impact on the game was felt in all aspects.

Teammate Dejounte Murray also had a standout performance, scoring 41 points to lead the Nuggets to victory.

Ready for the Challenge

Despite their success, the Nuggets are aware that they have a target on their back and that opposing teams will bring their best effort night after night. "We can’t underestimate any team," said Murray. "We’ve got to come prepared." The Nuggets lived up to this expectation in their win against the Hawks, who struggled to keep up with the Denver's determined play.

Work for Everything

Hawks coach Nate McMillan praised the Nuggets for their defensive efforts, stating, "They just made us work for everything on the offensive end of the floor." Dejounte Murray led the Hawks with 28 points, followed by De'Andre Hunter with 20 points.

Despite their efforts, the Hawks couldn't recover from a first half deficit, ultimately falling to the Nuggets.
