The Denver Nuggets (37-19) recorded a commanding 130-110 victory over the struggling Washington Wizards (9-46) on Thursday night, fueled by Nikola Jokic’s historic triple-double performance.

Jokic’s triple-double, comprising 21 points, 19 rebounds, and 15 assists, marked his 16th of the season, solidifying his status as one of the league’s triple-double leaders alongside Domantas Sabonis.

Michael Porter Jr. contributed 22 points and 11 rebounds for the Nuggets, who bounced back from a three-game losing streak with a resounding win.

Despite the Wizards’ offensive efforts led by Kyle Kuzma’s stellar 31-point performance, Washington faltered, extending their losing streak to nine games.

Jamal Murray, returning from injury, made his presence felt with 18 points, eight assists, and three steals, providing crucial support for the Nuggets’ dominant performance.

Despite Washington’s valiant efforts, the Nuggets’ collective firepower and Jokic’s historic triple-double proved too much to overcome, reaffirming Denver’s status as a formidable contender in the Western Conference playoff race.
