Nikola Jokic scored 13 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and dished out 13 assists helping the Nuggets defeat the Grizzlies (105-91).
It was his 82nd career triple-double, which is the most by any center in NBA history. The reigning two-time league MVP talked to the Inside the NBA crew after the game.
The 27-year-old Serbian superstar received a compliment from NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal who compared him to Tim Duncan.
“He’s a Tim Duncan of big men,” O’Neal said on TNT. “I’m saying the way he dominates the game, he’s not flashy. Love this kid and how he plays.”
This season Jokic is averaging 25.2 points, 10.9 rebounds and 9 assists in 32.9 minutes per game.
