Nikola Jokic is having a monster season with the shorthanded Nuggets as Denver took another scrambling victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday.
The Nuggets superstar made all kinds of history after dropping his second consecutive 20+ points and 20+ rebounds game with the Nuggets to get the win.
Jokic had his sixth game with 20+ points and 20+ rebounds, passing Marcus Camby and giving him the most in the Nuggets’ history.
Jokic led the Nuggets to the close 103-100 victory to improve to 16-16, finishing with monster numbers of 26 points, 22 rebounds, eight assists, two steals, and two blocks.
The Nuggets’ superstar also became the first player to register back-to-back games with 25+ points, 20+ rebounds, and 5+ assists since NBA legend Charles Barkley.
As the season continues, Jokic will have to remain at his top of the game to hold the Nuggets among the best eight teams in the West. Denver is expected to play without Michael Porter Jr. and Jamal Murray this season.
