Nikola Jokic put on a show in the game against the Phoenix Suns as he scored 31 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and dished 8 assists. It was the 15th straight double-double for the Serbian center.

Former NBA champion Kendrick Perkins was impressed with Jokic’s performance. “That damn Jokic is beyond SPECIAL…I guess Greg Pop was right with the comparison to Larry Bird,” he tweeted.

This season, Joker is averaging 25.5 points, 11.3 rebounds and 9.9 assists per game for the Denver Nuggets.
