Nikola Jokic Sets a New Franchise Record with Triple-Double Performance

Serbian basketball player Nikola Jokic recorded another fantastic game and led his Denver Nuggets to a 119:105 victory over the Charlotte Hornets on the road with a triple-double. “It's really important just to get back to winning after our loss (Thursday night) to Orlando," Jokic said via ESPN.

“We didn't start well, but in the second half our defense won the game”. Jokic registered a new triple-double, which he achieved with the performance of 30 points, 16 rebounds, and 10 assists. It was his 20th triple-double performance of the season and thus set a new franchise record.

There are still 25 games left in the regular season and there is no doubt that Jokic will improve this record for the entire Denver team. The leader of the West had a minus of 16 points. However, in the third quarter, on the wings of Jokic, they reached an unattainable difference, entered the last section with an 11-point lead and easily saved it for another victory.

Kyrie Ivring (28 points, seven rebounds and seven assists) and Luka Doncic (27 points, nine rebounds, and five assists) were not enough for Dallas to defeat the Sacramento Kings after overtime.

"It's only our first game together, but it's so fun to play with this guy," Doncic told ESPN about Kyrie Irving. "He's an amazing basketball player, and I think it's going to be really fun. First game, it was really fun." The Kings won with a score of 133:128, and DeAaron Fox led them to victory with 36 points.

The biggest surprise of the evening was provided by the Los Angeles Lakers, who celebrated on the road against the Golden State Warriors with a score of 109:103. Atlanta and Washington also recorded sure victories.
