Nikola Jokic took just five shots and made all of them in the win against the Lakers (122-109), but he still had a triple-double as he also grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out 16 assists.
After the game Russell Westbrook, who is famous for his own triple-doubles, was asked what’s special about the way the Serbian superstar can impact the game.
“His size. He’s able to see, make plays,” Westbrook said. “And as you know, you don’t have to score the ball to impact winning. And he does a good job of setting his guys up and the guys around him are ready making the game easy for him.”
This season Jokic is averaging 25.3 points, 10.8 rebounds and 9.5 assists in 33.4 minutes per game.
