Nikola Jokic Leads Nuggets to Victory Over Grizzlies with Triple-Double Performance

Denver, Colorado - Serbian basketball superstar Nikola Jokic made history once again as he achieved his 25th triple-double performance this season in his team's 113:97 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. Jokic finished the match with 18 points, 18 rebounds, and 10 assists, further solidifying his place among the greats of the sport.

Denver Dominates Memphis with Unstoppable Squad

The Denver squad was too much for the Grizzlies to handle, as multiple players stepped up to contribute to the win. Michael Jr. Porter led the team with 26 points, while Jamal Murray added 22, and Bobby Brown contributed 15.

With Jokic's triple-double performance, the Memphis team had no chance of escape.

Playoff Atmosphere Since All-Star Break

Denver coach Michael Malone acknowledged the intense atmosphere of the game, stating, “Since the All-Star break, it feels like every night’s a playoff-type game”.

The team has faced tough opponents such as Memphis, Cleveland, and the LA Clippers and has come out on top each time.

Team Unity Leads to Unselfish Play

Jamal Murray spoke highly of the team's unselfish play in the fourth quarter, saying, “Anybody can make a shot, but we’re getting stops, we were getting out and running, the team was flowing.

Everyone was being unselfish”. The team's cohesion and mutual support proved to be the key to their success.

Brief Moment of Tension on the Court

However, there was a brief moment of tension on the court when rival Dillon Brooks pulled Jokic's arm in an unsportsmanlike move.

Jokic threatened Brooks during his defensive return, leading to a short push in the middle of the field. The referee showed a mutual technical error to diffuse the situation.
