Nikola Jokic registered his ninth triple-double of the season on Tuesday, scoring an ultra-efficient 37 points (15-23 FG, 2-3 3-pt, 5-5 FT) while notching 10 rebounds, 11 assists, and two steals in a 128-97 blowout victory over Milwaukee.
Much like everyone else in the NBA this season, Jokic had his way with the Bucks defense tonight, posting another marvelous fantasy line in the process. What more is there to say about the Joker this season that has not already been said. He's having the best season of his career, is the top overall fantasy player (in virtually any format), and is likely the current frontrunner (by a slim margin) for league MVP. The Nuggets have now won three straight and will battle with the Pacers on Thursday before heading into the All-Star break.
